*** Amethyst Winter Guard, a joint venture between MYP and Truman State, just took the Gold at MCCGA Championships on April 2, 2016; and they had an undefeated
season! This gives guards associated with MYP five Golds and one Silver since our MYP
competitive winter guard program began in 2011. And while that is a
fine accomplishment, it is the high quality and integrity of the people
involved which I cherish the most. Thanks goes out to Jennifer, Caryn,
the performers, Dr. Prendergast at Truman State, Joel, and all others who helped attain yet
another qualitative season.
Momentum Youth Performance, Inc is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Corporation and
dedicated to providing performance opportunities to young artistic
athletes with the ultimate goal of fielding a competitive Drum &
Bugle Corps in DCI.
Our first step is our community based Theorem Educational Program; it will stay at the local-regional level with color guards performing in the MCCGA circuit, and that program has already become a tremendous success. The second step is to create a Velocity Program consisting of a WGI Guard along with small music ensembles adding in brass and percussion which shall perform in DCI Sound Sport, DCI Drum Line Battle, and WGI Winds. The last step will be forming the full Momentum Drum & Bugle Corps which will compete in DCI Open Class and eventually move into the DCI World Class.
The philosophy of Momentum Youth Performance, Inc is grounded in patience and
responsibility; so the full competitive DCI corps will not go active until we can financially
support the goals
of providing a quality environment for the youth. Momentum's Board and Staff are working diligently and responsibly in building our organization into a viable entity. We invite you to learn more about us by reading through this website, and if you would like to donate please send a pledge to the address on our contact page.
Thank you for your interest in our quest!
