Drum corps as we know it, has changed. So many new opportunities for corps, members, and fans to get back to the activity they love so much. With Drum Corps International holding exhibition events and a shortened tour, as well as Drum Corps Associates holding a fully virtual live streamed season, the steps the activity are taking to get back to the field are remarkable!
As members of Drum Corps International and Drum Corps Associates, the Saints are offered a unique opportunity to experience both circuits this summer. We’re happy to announce that along with Drum Corps Associates virtual competitions, the Saints will participate in the Drum Corps International Tour. Visiting the Bluecoats, at their Akron show on August 9th, and will perform in Indianapolis on August 14th. In addition to this, the corps may appears as part of the livestream by FloMarching.
This is a rare opportunity for the Saints, and to make it the best we’re searching for a few more members, while also extending our numerous scholarship offerings for 2021. Our production, titled “Funk Spectacular” focuses on entertaining the crowd with popular selections from Stevie Wonder, Earth Wind and Fire and more… we just need YOU to make it better! We’re looking for a few more 1 Trombone, 1 Baritone, 1 Tuba, Bass 3, and Snare 2 to join us for the rest of the season. It doesn’t matter if you’re an older drum corps age-out, college band vet, or high school student – let’s bring the crowd to their feet together this season!
