  1. This morning I pulled out my DCA tickets which I bought last year at Finals. I forgot I had bought two seats to DCA Prelims and Finals (hoping that perhaps I wouldn't be....all...by....myself....don't wanna be...all...by...myself...anymore....). Anyway if anyone is looking for one seat for both nights in the best possible location (section 307, row G, seat 11), please be in touch soon. These are premium seats and are sold-out. I am offering at face value of $45 Prelims, $50 finals, and I'd prefer to sell both to the same person rather than be stuck holding one or the other. (Yes, I know that if you look at the ticketing website, it shows $40 for prelims premium seats, but apparently someone made that decision after I purchased my tickets, because I paid $45.)
  2. Drum Corps Associates (DCA) is hosting their 53rd annual “Parade of Champions” competition on Saturday, August 15, 2015.

  6. ALLIANCE 2015

    Alliance Drum and Bugle Corps has declared to compete in Class A for the 2015 season! The decision to compete in Class A this year was not taken lightly, but the staff and administration are excited about the move and potential it brings to the drum corps. We just completed our "Super Camp" (four day camp) and it concluded with the performance of nearly 8 minutes worth of the show. This is a first for Alliance and we are very excited about the possibilities that this opens up for our corps as the season unfolds. We are very excited to be on track with doing our first full-run next weekend at the conclusion of camp! Alliance's interim corps director, Jeffrey Peterson, was clear from the beginning of the season that he wanted to maintain Alliance's commitment to excellence and set the corps on a solid path for success. The corps has welcomed 69 members to its ranks (including two drum majors and two alternates) and has made key changes in its operation to give its members the best education and experience possible. Furthermore, the corps' administration is committed to giving as many performance opportunities as possible this year, including attending three DCA shows, a local DCI regional, a parade tour and a friends and family performance. We hope that you will enjoy our program, "Sub-zero" this year, and I speak for all of us at Alliance when I say that we are excited to present it to you.

  11. Hello, my name is Alexis Macy. I have been contracted to march baritone with the Sacramento Mandarins for their 2015 season. This is a major dream come true for me because I have always wanted to march with a corps, but I never though I could because Im primarily a flute player. I had taught myself baritone (I have been playing for about 9 months now) and I never thought I wouldve been good enough. But now I have been contracted and I have the chance to live my dream. However, there are a lot of fees associated with drum corps. My tour fees plus round trip flight for April is $1600. I am in desperate need for help with this fee. My parents are doing all they can, but they also have financial committments, which means it is up to me to try to raise the funds. If you, or anyone you know could possibly help, I have a gofundme account with which you can donate. My gofundme is gofundme.com/mandarinsme. Any donation is greatly appreciated! Please, I really need help. It would be heartbreaking if I couldnt march my dream due to lack of finances. Thank you!

  15. Centurions 2015

    An message from our corps director: The Centurions Drum and Bugle corps will take on a new direction for the 2015 season. As a rebuilding year, the corps will focus on its membership and staff while strengthening its relationship with the alumni and community. With a conservative rehearsal schedule, performances will focus on (but not limited to) Ensembles, Individual, Exhibitions and Parades. “The fun of performing” will be emphasized this year as the corps embarks on a road less traveled. With this in mind, the corps continues to seek enthusiastic, motivated and creative individuals to bring this vision to light. To be a part of this new adventure, contact Nick Yaworski at nyaworski@sbcglobal.net or 203-720-2858.
