Veteran members of the world class Crossmen Drum and Bugle corps weigh in on their experiences with the corps, and what it means to be a part of such a tight-knit community.
The Crossmen are made up of 150 young adults ages 15-21, who give up their entire summers to travel the country and compete against other world class corps. Members rehearse outside in the summer heat upwards of 12 hours a day, performing challenging music at grueling tempos. It is a life changing and musically enriching experience.
