  1. Heartliners' admin/volunteers were a fundamental part of our trip to Austria. We rented their box truck and line of Yamaha horns, and one of their members filled in on cymbals. They were great crew that stuck with us during the trip and gave us lots of insight about the activity in their neck-of-the-woods.
  2. As the semi-official DCP profile of the Govenaires Drum and Bugle corps, let me state for the record: there is no affiliation between the Govenaires and The Prince of Darkness.* *Not yet, anyway.
  3. That looks like an error. We performed our show and got a score both nights.
  4. The mini-corps repertoire will be: - NPR Themes (BJ Leiderman) - Stormy Weather (Harold Arlen/Ted Koehler) - Curried Soul (Moe Koffman) ... we got a lot of NPR fans in this corps.
  5. Stay tuned on our Facebook page for more updates during the coming weeks. #Prost
  6. The Govenaires are proud to present their 2018 program, A Wo/Man’s World. The show explores the challenges and triumphs of women as they navigate through a traditionally “Man’s World.” A Wo/Man’s World is a place where strength is celebrated … where glass ceilings are meant to be shattered. We end with a call to everyone to unite in support of each other – regardless of gender – for the betterment of our world. Follow us this summer as the Govenaires perform A Wo/Man’s World. Musical selections include: Proud Mary | John Fogerty Kaval Sviri | Traditional Bulgarian folk song It's a Man's Man's Man's World | James Brown and Betty Jean Newsome Run the World (Girls) | Beyoncé Ain't No Mountain High Enough | Nickolas Ashford and Valerie Simpson Respect | Otis Redding and Aretha Franklin Founded in 1927, the Govenaires are thirteen-time Drum Corps Associates (DCA) finalists and four-time DCA Class A champions – winning in 2006, 2009, 2011, and 2015.

  10. Govenaires Announce Show for 2017 Season … Uncharted: A Lost Relic Deep in a hostile forest, near the legendary ruins of a lost city, an expedition finds a mysterious object. Great excitement and wonder comes with discovery of the unexpected relic … until something goes wrong. For the Govenaires’ 90th anniversary, they will jump into uncharted territory, where constant threats lay hidden at every turn. The 2017 production is an adventure that will launch you into a world where its most precious treasures are unearthed at a terrible cost. The show will feature moments of monumental reward and devastating risk. Will the expedition survive the inexplicable dangers from outside and within?

  11. Next week, the Govenaires will depart to China to perform in the 2016 Shanghai Tourism Festival. The weeklong trip will include several performances, including an opportunity to march in the gigantic night parade on Saturday, September 10. The group consist of current Govie members, alumni, and members from other corps including Minnesota Brass and the Kilties. If you want to catch a live performance (without dealing with a transpacific flight), come catch a preview this Friday at I&E. We are scheduled to perform in exhibition at 9 p.m. at the Empire Room. See you there!
