There is no other sound like it in the world. The sounds of a Drum Corps brass line returned to the field for our Summer Series Brass and Percussion Event. Over 40 brass players joined our percussion group for a great day of fun and world class instruction. The corps welcomed guest clinician, Dr. David Earll, who joined our Brass Caption Head, Tony Godoy, and Show Coordinator, Timmy Allen in leading the corps through some technique and performance exercises. A fantastic mix of veterans and new faces showed how much can be accomplished with focus and enthusiasm, and we are eagerly looking forward to continuing to develop our 2022 program “Slaughter”.

We are excited to announce plans for a Skyliners Summer Series of events to be scheduled for the summer of 2021. After carefully considering the options for participating in the DCA Virtual Competitive Season, we have decided instead to spend this summer exploring unique performance opportunities and community events that have not been possible during a normal competitive season. We will also be continuing to develop our “Slaughter” production that was shaping up to be an exciting part of our 75th Anniversary before we had to suspend operations due to pandemic restrictions. We look forward to finally being able to perform this program in the 2022 competition season as we celebrate what will be our 77th Anniversary. If you would like more information about how you can be a part of our proud history, please submit the interest form on our website.
