The Chicago Royal Airs Alumni Corps is proud and excited to announce its return to the exhibition field for the 2004 season. An entirely new show is being planned and a reasonable but meaningful performance schedule is being developed. Our goal is to, once again, be the "world's largest drum corps": to feature 80 horns, 30 percussion and 40 color guard.
Membership is open to anyone, regardless of experience, over 21 years of age. Positions are available in all sections. Auditions will only be required for soloists, drum majors and color guard sergeants. Contact either the webmaster (email@example.com) or the corps director (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
