As the church bell echoes of the 2023 season fade into memory, anticipation is building for the next firey chapter in the Northern Lights Drum & Bugle Corps journey. The 2024 season promises to be an exciting and transformative experience for the corps and its members, and fans alike. We are thrilled to announce our season schedule!
Virtual Informational Q&A Sessions:
Get to Know NLDBC!
Our Virtual Q&A Sessions offer an excellent way to learn more about Northern Lights, get to know our board of directors and dedicated staff.
These sessions will be broken down for general Q&A and a parent/guardian session where we will dedicate our efforts to ensuring that our members' biggest fans are fully informed about what it means to be a member of the Northern Lights.
Where Stars Begin to Shine!
Our journey to excellence begins with the audition camps, where we welcome talented musicians and performers from around the country to join our ranks. These camps provide aspiring members with the opportunity to showcase their skills, learn from our dedicated staff, and immerse themselves in the Northern Lights family. Mark your calendars for these audition camp dates:
Stoking the Flame & Forging Unity!
Once our roster is complete, the real work begins. Our spring and summer rehearsal camps are the crucible where raw talent is forged into a harmonious and synchronized corps. Here are the crucial dates to remember:
These camps are where the magic happens. Months of hard work and dedication culminate in the formation of a tight-knit, high-achieving ensemble.
We have virtual rehearsals through the winter which act as memorization checks for at-home practice. Then we step off our spring program with a three day "Spring Training" event, which breaks up fundamentals blocks across spring break weekend and gives our members that feeling of moving into a touring corps.
Then through the spring months, we begin to put the show on the field with drill camps so come summer we'll be ready to perform our field show!
A Showcase of Excellence
The Northern Lights Drum & Bugle Corps has begun to build a tradition of blowing our audience away. The months of May, June, and July are for cleaning the show as we prepare for our culminating performance in August.
Burning Bright in Indianapolis:
A Season to Remember
The highlight of our 2024 season will take place in Indianapolis, where we will compete against other elite corps and celebrate the culmination of a successful season. This event promises to be a spectacle of music, movement, and emotion as we strive to leave a lasting impression on judges and fans alike. Save the date for our grand finale:
As we embark on this exciting journey, the Northern Lights Drum & Bugle Corps invites you to be a part of our 2024 season.
