  1. *Centurions Drum and Bugle Corps Winter Update - February 2, 2016* We continue to meet every Friday (weather permitting) from 7:00-9:30 pm at Sacred Heart Parish Center in Feeding Hills, MA, an easy drive from the Hartford area or Western Mass. We are working on rebuilding the corps and learn music for the Bugler's Hall of Fame show in April. We are having a great time playing new music as well as some old favorites. If you are free on a Friday stop in, play, and have some fun. We look forward to seeing both old and new faces in the coming weeks...looking for members in all sections! When: Every Friday evening, 7:00-9:30 pm Where: Sacred Heart Parish Center 1061 Springfield St. Feeding Hills, MA 01030
  2. 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.
  3. Now that the holidays are over, its time to get back to drum corps! Our first camp of 2015 is coming up in just over a week. We will continue work on our program "A Roman Legion's Tale."

  5. With Open Houses starting this weekend for DCA corps, you may still be on the fence about which ones to visit. So..."Why March Centurions?" Here are just a few answers... *Low tuition cost - less than $150 for the season (not including ancillary items - i.e. meals, hotel for championships etc). *Conservative rehearsal schedule - you can participate and still have time for other summer activities. *Top notch staff - the combined experience of the instructional staff is well over 100 years. *Conveniently located along the CT and MA border. *We are a 501©3 non-profit - your participation counts towards Community Service on your resume. *Despite the hard work, emotional roller coasters, ache and pains...you will grow as a person, build character, and gain lifelong friends...at the end of the day, we are a family! Join us for our 2015 Open House coming up next weekend and find out for yourself!
