U.S. Army All-American Marching Band excels in San Antonio

by Drum Corps International

The country’s top high school marching musicians headed to San Antonio last week to perform as part of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

With a search process spearheaded by the National Association for Music Education, the 125 high school seniors chosen annually for the U.S. Army All-American Marching Band (USAAAMB) are students known for their exceptional musicianship, marching achievement, character and leadership.

A program supported by Drum Corps International since its founding in 2008, USAAAMB students receive an all-expenses-paid trip to San Antonio where they have just five days to learn, rehearse, and perform a complete halftime show for the All-American Bowl game.

As part of the experience, students are taught by a team of leading music educators from across the country, and throughout the week, they also have the opportunity to work side-by-side with the professional musicians of the U.S. Army Bands.
