2021 Season Update

SAN ANTONIO, TX – December 3, 2020 – Over the last several months, Crossmen Drum & Bugle Corps has been in constant communication with the other participating organizations that make up Drum Corps International. Through these partnerships, we have created a plan that will offer our members a once in a lifetime experience that is both safe and fulfilling. We are thrilled to announce there WILL be a 2021 season for our members. We are excited to start planning for a Texas tour, ending our unique season at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana in August.

“We anticipate that if circumstances improve with regard to controlling the pandemic…” - Drum Corps International CEO, Dan Acheson.

It will not come without considerable challenges and unique experiences we must face to gear up for the 2021 Summer. DCI and the Voting Member Corps put together a team of medical, event and safety professionals to construct a book of suggested guidelines for each participating organization to follow. New mandates, regulations and guidelines will be put into place for each individual corps but also as a participating organization in any performance opportunity. 2021 plans are continuously fluid as we work through every aspect of the experience.

In the mean time, the drum corps of Texas are actively working together to create performance opportunities for our members and the communities we serve. We are supporting each other with resources, concepts and ideas, all of which to ensure the members of each Texas  drum corps have a life enriching summer in 2021. Together, we are committed to making the member experience our priority. 2021 will look, feel and function differently than any other year before. Our goal is to provide our friends, family and community the drum corps experience that will get us through to 2022.

The Crossmen Team is excited to create a summer filled with innovative design, performed in front of enthusiastic audiences. More information about auditions, camps, and tour dates will be released as they become available. Please continue to follow us as our incredible summer dream becomes a reality.
