In 2015, the two-time DCA Class A Champion White Sabers will entertain DCA audiences with their exploration into the ancient world by portraying savage incantations, rituals, and dance. The White Sabers look to continue their unique blend of sophistication and entertainment set to Stravinsky’s polarizing Rite of Spring, Incantation and Dance by John Barnes Chance, and the DCA crowd favorite Danse Bacchanale by Camille Saint-Saëns.

The White Sabers are ready to make a big splash in their first year competing in Open Class and are ready to take on a challenging repertoire designed to put audiences on their feet in 2015!

Certainly an accomplished and highly respected brass arranger and instructor in the drum and bugle corps arena, Bob Zazzara’s significant influence has been felt throughout not only drum corps but in education and adjudication. Bob earned his Bachelor’s Degree as a trumpet major but then went on to a Master’s Degree in vocal music.  Bob’s talent was and is recognized by virtually every adjudication association from DCA to DCI.
