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 Project (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.
Double Impact is supported in part by grants from the Ipswich and Massachusetts Cultural Councils.
