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.

White Sabers Win 2013 DCA Class A Championships!!

After an undefeated season as well as placing first in preliminary competitions, the White Sabers from Dansville, NY went on to win 1st place in Class A championship competition with a score of 85.93. Additionally, the corps won the captions of High Visual, High Percussion, High Guard, High Brass and High Music Effect. The White Sabers Drum and Bugle Corps has been a competitive corps in DCA since 2005, and this is their first championship. First and foremost, we would like to thank all of our fans, new and old, for supporting us in this endeavor.

We would like to thank The Govenaires as well as the other Class A corps for providing a wonderful season of competition. We would also like to congratulate the Reading Buccaneers for winning Open Class championships with a score of 98.43.

In addition, this championship weekend was especially emotional for our neighbors and friends, the Empire Statesmen from Rochester, NY. This weekend marked the end of their final competitive season, in which they truly showed the drum corps world how a drum corps becomes a legacy and tradition of entertainment. Thank you for these 30 years.
