PARENTS  CORNER 

What is Drum & Bugle Corps 

A modern drum and bugle corps, is a musical marching ensemble consisting of brass instruments, percussion instruments, mallets, and color guard. Typically operating as independent non-profit organizations, drum corps perform in competitions, parades, festivals, and other civic functions.

What are the benefits to the performers?

Drum corps is an activity which attempts to do much more than provide a performance opportunity for students or entertainment for the audience. Through the drum corps experience, students will learn useful life skills such as leadership, goal-setting, focus and teamwork, among others. EXCELSIOR'S  curriculum includes opportunities for students to exercise their potential not only as musicians & leaders .... but as complete human beings.

Can I Get Involved ?

We invite parents to come on the road with us for a couple of shows or parades  during the summer! We couldn't do what we do without an amazing team of volunteers, and we would love for you to get involved.

What kind of costs can I expect ?

Drum Corps is a weekend only 10 month activity for members from  14 years  to adult. 
Personal Costs may include shoes, undergarments for the protection of the uniform, small water cooler to keep hydrated , practice bag for comfort through out the course of the rehearsals.
