My name is Nicole Boyd and I plan on spending my summer with the Boston Crusaders drum & bugle corps. For about 2 1/2 months we will tour the country, starting on the West Coast then heading East. During this time we will travel over 12,000 miles and perform in over 40 competitions.
What is drum & bugle corps? Drum & bugle corps is a musical marching unit consisting of brass instruments, percussion instruments and the color guard. Drum corps perform in competitions, parades and other events.Also, shows are performed on football fields.
The Boston Crusaders are the third-oldest drum & bugle corps and a proud founding member of Drum Corps International or DCI. For over 70 years, the Boston Crusaders has provided over 150 marching members each year an opportunity to experience a program of music education and performance training. While the Boston Crusaders are very competitive, placing top 12 in the past 13 years, they are equally known for providing a family environment.
I am asking family, friends, and alumni for support to proceed my Boston Crusader experience. Please click on the donate button and make a tax-deductible donation. Over 60% of our operating expenses (food, travel, and instruction) will be covered with your generous donation.
