Appalachian Sound Drum and Bugle Corps, a program of MAYDE, Incorporated, was founded to provide an outlet to the many talented wind, percussion, and guard performers of the metropolitan Atlanta area who could not afford the time, financial commitment, or level of performance demanded by existing local options. By giving these deserving young people access to a high-quality performing ensemble experience, the achievement gap between privileged and underprivileged students can be lessened.

Appalachian Sound is continuing to build upon the success of our inaugural season as we move into year two. You can help us reach our goal of helping students succeed by donating funds, materials, equipment, or volunteer time. Visit our Square Store to make a monetary donation, or our Donations page for information on in-kind donations.
