Three Rivers Indoor Percussion is a youth based, educational 501 (c) 3 nonprofit activity based in the Pittsburgh area. We provide musical instruction and life skills to musicians under the age of 22. T.R.I.P. was created to foster growth in the areas of musical appreciation and to facilitate an outlet for percussion exploration for any interested student, regardless of income status, or disability.
As we begin our 4th year, we can no longer depend on the borrowing of various marimbas, vibraphones, xylophones and keyboard synthesizers to use for our rehearsals and performances. In order for the group to maintain its growth, both locally and in national competition, we need to raise 40k for the purchase of new marching drums, mallets and other items essential for the group’s ongoing success.
We are beginning our quest to achieve these funds by raising the first $10,000 by the end of 2013 to purchase new vibes and marimbas for the kids. We would welcome a donation in any amount you can afford to help us meet our goal. We have given the gift of musical enrichment to over 60 members to date and hope to give the same opportunity to at least 30 additional young men and women in 2014.
Thank you for your time, and support. We hope you will consider a gift to help these kids realize their full potential.
