Join Frontier Drum & Bugle Corps

Posted by Director on May 28, 2010

The music doesn't stop at 22.

Frontier is a competitive, all-ages drum & bugle corps. Frontier's rehearsal and performance schedule is weekend-based, and the season runs from January to late summer. Frontier has competed in the Drum Corps Associates (DCA) Open Class division and also the DCI All-Ages division.

DCA ('all-ages') corps are an opportunity for current or former band members, band directors, and professional musicians to perform together; and, it is an alternative for those students who are unable to march DCI due to time, money, family and school commitments.

While prior marching (high-school, college, drum corps) experience is preferred, there are programs in place for less experienced performers who have the desire to participate in a drum & bugle corps. Dedication, a strong work ethic, and a positive attitude are the true factors of a successful drum corps experience.

Frontier is special in that its membership is so diverse in experience. In Frontier, you will find alumni from corps all over the country (including DCI and DCA world champions), alumni of local (championship) bands, winterguard, drumline, and university programs, as well as youth and adults who have not experienced drum corps membership first-hand.

Frontier's membership comprises the following age ranges:

  • 21 and up: March until your body tells you no.
  • 18 to 21: Membership is conditional. If you have the opportunity, march DCI.
  • 15 to 17: A family member, band director, or other approved sponsor or guardian must be involved with the corps as a volunteer, member, or staff.

All-age corps is a way for people of all levels of experience to perform together. So that we have a balanced and competitive unit, there are auditions to gain full performance membership in the corps. Find out the 'Register' tab near the top of this page or click here.

Prospective members, volunteers, supporters, families and friends are always welcome to attend/visit any Frontier rehearsal. You can meet other corps members, staff and administrators and you'll get the opportunity to perform with other members and learn from our talented and experienced staff.
