Urban Drumline Collaboration
In 2022, Chops and numerous project partners launched All-City Drumline to bring attention and resources to the many urban youth drumlines in the Minneapolis area. Chops is providing financial support and coordination, while our project partners contribute instructional expertise, rehearsal space, and performance opportunities. Collaborators include Twin Cities Community Arts, Edison High School, Loveworks Academy, Minnesota Percussion Association, and TKO Drumline.
Instructional clinics are scheduled for April 21st and May 26th, 2022.
"This is the largest turnout for urban percussion that I have seen ever since I moved to Minnesota in 2010," said project advisor Arthur Turner, founder of TKO Drumline and Loveworks Academy for Arts.
