Drum and Bugle Corps Perform for Dad’s Day

The Crossmen Drum & Bugle Corps, a group of 150 brass, percussion and color guard performers, will perform at the second annual Showcase in the Square, a free Father’s Day drum and bugle event, from 7 to 9 p.m., June 17, at Rustin Park Pavilion, in Southlake.

The two-hour production of music, theatrics and pageantry is a preview of the 10-week U.S. tour The Crossmen will perform across the country, culminating with the DCI World Championship, in Indianapolis, Indiana. Musical excellence, marching precision, dance and humor are woven into intricate march patterns, formations and transitions, coordinated with a musical production.

The San Antonio-based Crossmen, comprised of individuals of age 15 to 21 that excel in brass, percussion or color guard, are the only DCI World Class Drum Corps in Texas. DCI is a global nonprofit organization promoting music education and entertainment.

Everyone is encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets to comfortably relax and enjoy the performance. Donations will be accepted for the benefit of the participating corps, many from the North Texas area, that spend their summer months learning, performing and competing.

Location: 1400 Main St., Southlake. For more information call 817-748-8652 or visit VisitSouthlakeTexas.com.
