In The News – Govenaires Heading To China

| |

Last year was a big one for St. Peter’s Govenaires Drum and Bugle Corps.

Not only did they emerge champions of the open class at Drum Corps America (where drum and bugle corps from around the country compete), but they also booked a trip to China.

The Govenaires, following their 2016 competitive season, will board planes bound for Shanghai where they’ll march in a parade and give various performances of their annual field show.
