Tympani Fund

Timpani, also known as kettledrums, create a huge part of the sound in the percussion section. They can be tuned to play the specific notes needed for each song. Their size also takes up a lot of physical room. There are typically a set of 3-4 of these drums in a concert band or orchestra.

Timpani models and innovations have made strides in recent decades. For many years, the Lima Area Concert Band and the Lima Symphony Orchestra have shared timpani that were originally purchased in 1976! While they have been well loved, the time has come for an upgrade. The Lima Area Concert Band and Lima Symphony Orchestra are teaming together to raise the necessary $50,000 to purchase drums worthy of the two fantastic organizations that strive to continue to present incredible music at the Lima Veterans Memorial Civic Center for many years to come.

Last year the Lima Area Concert Band and the Lima Symphony Orchestra lost a long-time, very valuable percussionist. Jim Leaman was the leader of both of our percussion sections for many years as well as a music instructor to hundreds of young percussionists throughout the Lima area. He will continue to be sorely missed for many years to come. We are kindly asking our supporters for donations to this timpani fund as a way of honoring Jim’s contribution to our organizations and his dedication to his students.

The Lima Area Concert Band and the Lima Symphony Orchestra are both 501(c)3 organizations and all gifts are tax deductible. If you would like to donate to this fund, visit our sponsorship page at limaareaconcertband.org for details.
