Hello world! We are excited to announce the founding of The Battalion Drum & Bugle Corps, an organization dedicated to providing incredible performance and educational opportunities to an underserved community.
The Battalion Drum & Bugle Corps fills a growing need to create a competitive touring corps in Utah. There is a vast amount of untapped talent in the Beehive State, and we aim to develop that talent into a powerful, impressive, and impactful drum corps.
Music is an essential part of the human experience, and opportunities to create music, especially in the drum corps activity, should be available to all. We welcome all who have qualified themselves through the development of their character and talent to audition for and perform with The Battalion Drum & Bugle Corps.
In order to create the most inclusive and accepting environment possible, we aim to facilitate an instructional and performance climate that allows as many qualified individuals in our community as possible to participate in the drum corps activity. We know that many in our community come from religious backgrounds, and it is in this spirit that The Battalion Drum & Bugle Corps will allow those members to attend worship services while on tour if they so choose.
To further cater to our recruitment base, The Battalion Drum & Bugle Corps will not compete on Sundays in order to allow corps members take part in preplanned community outreach and service projects where the corps is housed while on tour.
Regardless of religion, race, color, gender, or orientation, we invite, encourage, and welcome students from every background to experience the magic of drum and bugle corps in the safe, wholesome environment we aim to create. We are excited to bring the magic of marching music's major league to an underserved community.
