TEXAS' LEADING MARCHING & PERFORMING ARTS ORGANIZATION

THE DRUM CORPS EXPERIENCE

DRUM CORPS SUMMER EXPERIENCE DAY

Come eXperience Crossmen Drum & Bugle Corps on June 13, 2020!

The eXperience day camp is open to ALL middle school and high school students. All brass, woodwind, battery percussion, and color guard performers are invited!  Students enrolled in the eXperience Day Camp will rehearse and perform alongside the Crossmen! 

Current and aspiring marching band students will learn fundamentals and music from Crossmen instructors and will perform with the corps Saturday night at the Marching Music eXtravaganza! Information and materials are sent only to paid registrants. For any additional questions, please contact us.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

While the performance opportunity with the Crossmen is unforgettable, attendees eXperience so much more! Each student learns the important fundamentals involved in creating a high level of performance such as: creating a balanced and musical sound at all dynamic levels, the best ways to approach playing while moving, etc, all while "living the life" of a Crossmen member for the afternoon. 

In addition to receiving instruction from our world class caption heads and staff, campers get to meet other marching band students from around the state and from a variety of backgrounds. They have the opportunity to interact and share their ideas and love for drum corps!

Additionally, eXperience Day Camp attendees perform with the Crossmen during the evening of the Marching Music eXtravaganza, when Crossmen debut their 2020 production. We encourage all band members, parents, educators, and fans of drum corps to come out that evening and watch the best marching arts programs in Texas!
