Double Impact Concert

Double Impact Concert

The Double Impact chamber group is a double quintet ensemble – brass and
woodwind – made up of professional and semi-professional musicians from the
North Shore and Greater Boston areas. Their goal is to promote works originally
written for this specific orchestration, as well as other lesser-known chamber
pieces, while donating their artistry to help fulfill an urgent need.
Double Impact previously performed in concert in 2017, featuring works by
Robert Washburn and Aaron Copland and raising funds for Direct Aid in the
aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. This time, they have again
banded together to provide support for the mass of refugees fleeing Afghanistan
and Ukraine. All proceeds from ticket sales for the Firehouse Center concert will
be donated to the International Refugee Assistance Program (IRAP,
https://refugeerights.org/). IRAP organizes law students and pro-bono attorneys
to develop and enforce a set of legal and human rights for refugees and displaced
persons, advancing legal pathways to safety for the world’s most persecuted
individuals and empowering the next generation of human rights leaders. Utilizing
the lessons learned in individual casework, IRAP advocates for systemic changes
that benefit broader refugee populations, finding creative ways to partner with
broad coalitions to push for global refugee protections.
