With the average career of a Drum Corps International performer typically spanning only one or two years, it's often a rarity to find someone who has put in more than a handful of years with a corps. But Noah Koch is one who has bucked that trend. He wrapped up his age-out season in 2017 after an incredible 10 years all with Kalamazoo's Open Class drum corps Legends.

“The corps from when I joined to now has grown 100-plus members and it's truly amazing just to see and be a part of that, and to know that I helped a little bit in creating what it is today,” Koch said.
