Friends of Ascend

Help Elevate Life Performance!

Established in 1998, Friends of Ascend (formerly known as Friends of the Blue Knightsdonors and their generosity have allowed us the flexibility to maintain our program membership tuition fees at an affordable level in the marching arts activity.

Without the support of our Friends, Ascend Performing Arts would not be able to provide life experiences to transform the members of the Blue Knights Drum and Bugle Corps and the Blue Knights Percussion Ensemble into contributing citizens of the future.  Your gift allows Blue Knights members to create lifelong friendships and unparalleled lifetime experiences.  Before you know it, they will be sitting in the stands, next to you, supporting the Blue Knights!  Every donation, no matter the size, makes a difference to our young performers.

Get Insider Access as a Recurring Donor!

We’ve all heard that “many hands make light work” and that “there is strength in numbers”, but did you know that this is the foundation of the Friends of Ascend recurring donor program that gives contributors “insider access” to the Blue Knights and Ascend Events?

When you donate as little as $10 per month–say the cost of a couple of coffees at Starbucks–on a recurring basis through the website, you will get special “behind the scenes” access each month featuring exclusive video updates on the Blue Knights Drum and Bugle Corps, Blue Knights Percussion Ensemble, Broncos Stampede and Broncos Brass, as well as Ascend Events (such as Drums Along the Rockies, Corps Encore, and Friendship Cups).  Get the latest insight from the Blue Knights directors, admin team, design team, education staff, members, and volunteers highlighting what it is like to be on the inside!

When you become a Friend of Ascend

— Get “breaking news” before the general public

— Gain “insider access” to Blue Knights ensembles and Ascend Events:

— Rehearsal and Tour video footage

— Design Team, Education Staff, and Member video interviews

— Access to high quality photos and graphics

That’s it!  Give as little as $10 per month on a recurring basis (or give at least $120 at one time and get 12 months of “membership”) and you’ll be on the inside of what is going on with the Blue Knights and Ascend Events.  Questions? Please contact Thelma Fung at
