2020 Columbus Saints

The Columbus Saints are Central-Ohio’s only competitive drum & bugle corps. We rehearse, travel, and perform on weekends during the spring and summer as members of DCI’s All-Age Class, and Drum Corps Associates Class A. This provides an affordable, work and wallet-friendly alternative to a World or Open Class corps, with a chance to travel, make friends, and perform.

*FEES REDUCED TO $600 FOR THE SEASON*

Corps FAQ

What is all-age drum corps?

All-Age Drum corps; formerly referred to as Senior Corps, is an activity that does not have the 21-year-old age limit found in World & Open Class corps. This allows for members of all ages to participate, as the schedule is structured for weekend rehearsals and competitions. Without the full-time commitment of touring, all-age corps provide a local, and affordable alternative for anyone aged 13 and up to participate!
