Join a Corps with 110 Years of Continued Excellence
I really enjoy the camaraderie and all of the wonderful people I have met.

The Westbrook Drum Corps is accepting new members! Members can join one of several sections: fife, snare drum, bass drum, or color guard. Prior musical experience may be helpful, but is not necessary.
New members will start marching with the color guard as they learn their instrument and songs to allow immediate participation and gain marching experience. The Westbrook Drum Corps has a large, evolving repertoire of music, consisting of general parade tunes, Irish selections, Christmas songs, Westbrook Specialties, and more.
The corps has approximately 25 performances per year, mainly parades and musters, throughout New England. Most performances are during the summer, however typically start in March (St. Patricks Day Parades) and run through early December (Holiday Parades). In addition to performances and rehearsals, the Westbrook Drum Corps also has corps happy hours, community give back events, and other outings.
The Westbrook Drum Corps has no membership fee or dues, and the majority of equipment is provided. We are a family-friendly group, and invite anyone with interest to learn more.
For more information, fill out the above form, or stop by a Tuesday night rehearsal!
Rehearsals and Meetings
The Westbrook Drum Corps practices Tuesday nights at our corps house, starting at 7pm.
Our corps house is located on the Westbrook Town Green (1196 Boston Post Rd, Westbrook, CT, 06498, Garden Level) with ample parking surrounding the green.
On the 3rd Tuesday of the month, a monthly business meeting is held. No rehearsal or meeting is held following our last performance in December through the third Tuesday of January, when our annual officer elections and first meeting are held. The Westbrook Drum Corps has several committees that members can also be a part of.
