OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE.
Heat Wave of Florida, Inc. and RPT Percussion are proud to announce a new partnership. This partnership is our first step towards providing year-round educational programs for the youth of Florida.
RPT Percussion will represent Heat Wave Drum & Bugle Corps as one of Heat Wave's newest performing ensembles. Vic Kulinski, Executive Director of RPT said, “Over the last two years I have seen the growth and maturity of the Heat Wave of Florida organization and have had members participate after our season was over. They have always come back having a great experience. The experiences that Jon and his staff provide are on point with the same mission we aim to provide in RPT Percussion."
RPT Percussion was established in 2009 as an indoor percussion performing ensemble. Since its inception, RPT has been a WGI A-Class finalist in the national WGI circuit and is an “A” Class Gold medalist in our local FFCC circuit. With this partnership, Heat Wave and RPT will share staff from both the administrative and educational sides. Both organizations will share resources to help Heat Wave and RPT provide the best educational experience for our members.
“I'm really excited about RPT joining the Heat Wave family. Part of our organization's growth plan is to provide additional educational opportunities for our members, and this partnership allows us to do that. Vic and his team bring a wealth of knowledge that will be beneficial to the growth of both Heat Wave Drum & Bugle Corps and RPT," said Jon Otero, Executive Director of Heat Wave of Florida,
