FPAA Presents “Screaming Christmas”
Frontier Performing Arts Association is pleased to announce the inaugural “Screaming Christmas.” This event is scheduled for November 30-December 2, 2007. It is a joint venture hosted by the City of Rockport, TX and sponsored by The Scream Machine Drum & Bugle Corps and Frontier Performing Arts Association. This event will bring drum & bugle corps to the Corpus Christi, TX area, and attention to two new drum corps projects in South Texas. The Scream Machine, a new DCA corps based in Rockport, TX and Texas Kingsmen, a DCI corps, based in Kingsville, TX. are both seeking marching members and will be on hand to speak to new recruits. Members of all drum corps and marching bands are encouraged to come join the celebration and be a part of an annual event. No drum corps experience is necessary.ntiercorps.org info [at] frontiercorps [dot] org.
Screaming Christmas is a tropical holiday celebration bringing members of different pageantry arts to perform en masse and celebrate Christmas Texas-style – loud, intense, and screaming. There will be food, music and guard performances, master clinics, drum corps videos and, of course, drum corps camaraderie!
The weekend will include master classes, audition opportunities, and representatives from Texas drum corps on hand to answer questions and help performers join their respective corps. For a nominal $40 fee, housing, food, and event T-shirt will be provided. Rehearsals and master classes will go on throughout the weekend preparing the mass corps for a concert and parade. Those attending the event are encouraged to bring either G bugles or Bb marching instruments of your choice. Limited instruments will be available for rental over the weekend. For full details and registration information see the event website http://www.screamingchristmas.com.
Van and carpooling options from several cities in TX and LA will be available. Free shuttles from Corpus Christi Airport will also be provided with registration. Clinicians will be announced in the coming weeks.
