Ensembles

Perform At The Highest Caliber

From our humble start in 1958 as the Blue Knights Drum & Bugle Corps parade corps, Ascend Performing Arts now features three competitive marching ensembles. Each ensemble is comprised of young adults who rehearse, compete, and grow as individuals by performing at the highest caliber of the marching arts.
