So, who’s coming?The IMPS Motorcycle Display Team is a team of talented youngsters based out of London. They start young – some are five years old – and learn the slick tricks that have made them world-famous. If clowning around is more your style, Holmikers will brighten your day with their comedic “Horror Show” routine. These Swiss gymnasts are award-winning performers recognised by the International Circus Festival in Monte Carlo. Gebirgsmusikkorps Garmisch-Partenkirchen, or the German Mountain Army Band, has travelled around the world at least 50 times in their 61-year history.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a more unconventional percussion group than the Groove Onkels from Germany. They call themselves “trash percussionists” because they use large garbage and recycling bins as instruments.The Scotch College Pipe Band is a Swanbourne-based band that has been an icon of the school for 70 years, and this summer they’ll join the Massed Pipes & Drums. The United States Navy Fleet Forces Band is called the “Finest of the Fleet” and performs throughout the mid-Atlantic, the Ohio River Valley, and Central/South America. The Kalutskih Brothers from Moscow are acrobats and Guinness World Record holders who will showcase their precision and power on the Scotiabank Centre floor. The North American Brass Band Summer School will return, featuring the best brass musicians from around the world who are led by expert tutors.
