Meet Our 2020 Drum Majors
The Battalion recently held auditions for the 2020 drum major team during the corps' Utah Audition Event in January. At the end of a rigorous audition process, four drum majors were selected as the best fit to lead the corps on the long march to Indianapolis and the corps' first appearance at the Drum Corps International World Championships this August. The corps will be led by head drum major and fourth-year member Collin Moore with assistance from fourth-year member Everett Shryock and first-year members Logan Stanford and Taryn Tibbs.
"We were fortunate to have a talented pool of very qualified candidates to choose from at this year's audition," said Program Director Mark Hartman. "The team we've selected follows the tradition of outstanding servant-leaders that have led this corps since the very beginning of our organization in 2014. This is the team that will lead our corps into history as we compete at World Championships in Indianapolis for the first time ever!"

Collin Moore (Head Drum Major)
Collin Moore is a student at Snow College where he is studying music education and bassoon performance. This will be Collin's fourth year with The Battalion - having previously served on the drum major team for the 2017, 2018, and 2019 seasons - and his sixth year as a conductor. Collin hopes to build his skills as a conductor and leader, and help others learn to develop their own talents and abilities for the 2020 drum corps season.
Personal Statement: "The Battalion is a very special and unique opportunity for many that would not ordinarily get the chance to do drum corps, and I am excited and honored to help the corps to cultivate a culture of unity, service, passion and excellence. I hope to raise the bar and inspire the corps to find their maximum potential!"
