As many of you know, I have landed a contract to march with the Crossmen Drum and Bugle Corps this summer! If you aren't sure what drum corps is, let me fill you in.

Drum Corps International (DCI) is a competitive circuit of different drum corps from around the United States that takes place each summer. The audition process for each corps is strenuous and has hundreds, sometimes thousands, of auditionees for just a handful of spots.

In late May, these groups will begin a 3-4 week training period called "spring training" or "all days" in which they learn, rehearse and perfect their shows. The students in these groups rehearse 12 hours per day, or more.

After spring training, the drum corps go on tour across the country competing against each other in various cities for 2 months. The closest show to Houston that the Crossmen will be at is in San Antonio. After touring the country, World Championships commence in Indianapolis, Indiana. The season will end in mid-August.

I am hoping to become a big part of this organization and further better myself.

Just this month I was selected out of numerous auditionees to be a part of the Crossmen bassline.

Unfortunately, once you are selected, you must begin to figure out the financial situation. To be a part of such group, it costs $2750 in tuition. This does not include a monthly camp fee of $100 from December- April or the purchase of a plane ticket back from Indianapolis, Indiana at the end of the tour.

I am asking for just a little bit of help. Any donation helps out tremendously. The fact that you've just looked at this page is a big deal to me, so donating even $1 is humongous. If you can't donate, send this page to your friends and family! Thanks so much for your interest, and I hope you can help!
