  • Without the Saints I would never have been able to gain the skill & experience to help me march WGI and more. It’s a family that challenges you while having fun, with a cost that allows anyone to participate.

  • After completing my undergrad, I realized I missed the marching band; the camaraderie and joy of performing. I’ve found both with the Saints, and I’m excited to be part of the family.
