Mark your calendars! On Friday, July 30th, Anna Maria College invites you to attend a family-friendly evening of fun games, snacks and activities culminating with a very special performance by The Cadets, the elite drum and bugle corps that has been training on our campus this summer. 

The Cadets have won ten American League National Championships, ten Drum Corps International World Championships and hundreds of regional and circuit championships making them one of the winningest drum corps in history. The modern drum corps consists of brass musicians, percussionists and a color guard. Their short but elaborate programs feature complex displays of musical excellence, marching precision, color drama and emotion. During a normal summer of competitive performances, The Cadets travel over 14,000 miles throughout the nation, entertaining hundreds of thousands of drum corps fans.

Our program on July 30th includes:

7:00 – 8:30 p.m. – Family activities and snacks located adjacent to Caparso Field, our football field. We will have inflatable obstacle courses, corn hole, spike ball and more. There will be watermelon, cookies, cotton candy and popcorn as well as soft drinks and water.

7:00 p.m. – The Cadets rehearse their ensemble on Caparso Field and provide practice explanations about their routine.

8:30 p.m. – The Cadets perform their complete routine which will last no more than 15 minutes.

This event is free and open to the public as part of Anna Maria College’s 75th Anniversary celebration of service and success. We hope you can attend.
