Supporting Global Music in Palm Springs – World Association of Marching Show Bands

The Altum Group is proud to be a sponsor of the 2017 World Association of Marching Show Bands (WAMSB) World Championship. This year’s event is the first to be held in the United States and is hosted by the Palm Springs High School Spirit of the Sands Band. The event runs from Nov 28 – Dec 2.

The event offers our communities an invitation to appreciate and respect the diversity and uniqueness of each performing ensemble, the regions from which they come from, and the countries that each represent. This year’s competition includes bands from the Czech Republic, Germany, Nigeria, Peru, Poland, USA, and more!

This year’s WAMSB Palm Springs World Championship event is coordinated by Altum Group president, Michael Peroni and his wife Cecilia, who, for three decades, have contributed to the lives of the students and the community of Palm Springs by sharing their lives and talents during the Palm Springs Invitational Tournaments. This year Mike and Cecila provided countless hours in hosting the wonderful bands who have come to participate in the first World Association of Marching Show Bands World Championship to be held in the United States.

Founded in 1991, the WAMSB and its volunteers have strived to connect marching show bands from around the world to facilitate communication and deliver the beauty of music. 26 years later the WAMSB is a worldwide network of marching show bands, hosting international competitions and sharing their charitable and educational interests.
