This summer, I hosted a weekly drum corps movie night at Broomfield High School in Broomfield, Colo. for students and recent alumni of the band program there.

As an instructor of the group, I wanted to give them some historical perspective on the activity, as well as an example of a highest level of excellence you can see on the marching field.

We watched more than 60 finals performances from my video collection, spanning the early 1970s trough last year, giving the students a taste of corps both new and old. The Broomfield band program has produced many drum corps members over the last several years, and with any luck, these movie nights will have inspired even more Broomfield students to go out and march in a drum corps!
