It is inspiring and exciting what these young people do on a football field."
Each corps consists of a hornline, drumline, front ensemble and colorguard. The 150 young men and women in each of the corps are 14 to 21 years old. The corps travel over 12,000 miles each summer, going daily from city to city competing in over 35 events in two months.
While in north Central Wisconsin, each corps will be housed at an area school and spend rehearsal time perfecting their summer programs which conclude in mid-August at the DCI World Championships in Indianapolis.
"These talented performers come from all over the United States and various other countries with many furthering their musical careers as music educators, dance directors and professional performers,” said Tollers.
North Central Wisconsin was once home to several Drum and Bugle Corps including Wausau Story, Wausau; Bells of St. Mary, Rhinelander; Zephyrs, Wisconsin Rapids and Maria, Stevens Point.
