American Drum Major Competitions
RELAUNCH OF CALIFORNIA’S LONGEST RUNNING DRUM MAJOR COMPETITION CIRCUIT SET TO SHAKE UP 2017 SEASON
Peacocks Marching World American Drum Major Competitions will return with a 2018 season. The company has released a tentative competition schedule which includes educational clinics for new, aspiring and returning competitors. The organization, short-handedly referred to as “Peacocks,” was the longest-running and most participated Drum Major competition series in the state. For over 30 years, they created arguably the nations top and most tested drum majors. Their tradition of producing formidable competitors and leaders can still be seen today – all of the other drum major circuits currently in operation are run by former competitors and champions of the Peacocks series.
The circuit plans on redefining how competitions operate, including accessing certain prestigious public venues that most people only get to be spectators at. “We’re pumped up for this. These competitions are going to be rigorous and demanding. We can’t mention certain venues we are in talks with, but they will bring an added flair and pressure,” said Esteban De Leon, the Director of Competitions, “the support that is mounting for this is incredible.”
There will be a clinic on Saturday, January 20, 2018 available for any student interested in competing, preparing for auditions or simply interested in refining their craft. This seminar will include instruction from accomplished adjudicators regarding the circuit and include lessons in Military Baton, Mace and Field Conducting. The clinic will be held at Temple City High School in Temple City, Calif. from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at a cost of $10 per student. Registration must be completed online at their website, but can be done at the school the morning of the clinic, so all walk-ons are welcome.
