Columbus Saints Drum & Bugle Corps

The Columbus Saints are a drum & bugle corps competing in Drum Corps Associates Class A. based in Columbus, OH. We provide a competitive performance program found in modern drum corps blended with a community and educational focused experience found in classic drum corps.

Like many SoundSport and Drum Corps Associates (DCA) organizations, we rehearse and perform primarily on the weekends, and have an affordable cost allowing members to enjoy the camaraderie and experience of drum corps without the full summer touring commitment. Our corps competes in the all-age class and is open to ages 12 up which means it perfect for high school or college students seeking a new experience!

Population(s) Served

This program is designed to appeal to varying skill levels including those with basic dance experience all the way to season marching band veterans looking for an affordable way to continue performing. As with all of our programs our focus is on educating members while providing a unique, local experience while competing in local competitive circuits.

Population(s) Served

Currently, we sponsor two community programs in partnership with the Boys & Girls Club:

Boys & Girls Club Beginning Color Guard
= emphasis on basic dance fundamentals, team building, and performance acumen. Works to expose young members of the Boys & Girls Club Westside in Columbus to the performing arts.

Boys & Girls Club BOOM! (Drumline)
= Weekly program that teaches basic marching percussion techniques including basic 26 American Standard Rudiments, musicianship, marching technique, and performance acumen
= Ensemble performs for numerous events around the community for audiences such as the United Way, Ohio State and more.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Since it's founding in 2003, the Saints primary goal has been to provide accessible arts education and performance opportunities to youth in the Central Ohio community. This is done by providing affordable education; community focused performance and engagement; and partnering with community organizations to ensure we are serving our members and neighbors.

The primary strategies we have used to accomplish our goals are as follows;

1.) Engaging with community leaders to determine needs for youth programming

2.) Partnering with local NGOs to reach and support our youth programs and support similar programs through shared resources

3.) Prioritizing performances in the community and for local, civic, and corporate events to ensure members are supporting their community

4.) Leveraging professional relationships for fundraising, management, and growth allowing for cost of involvement to be reduced

Through community partnerships, and strong support from members, parents, and volunteers the Saints are capable of supporting numerous programs. This includes managing logistics for travel, lodging, food for our programs. Developing and implementing education plans for over 100 participants yearly. Administrating project plans and administrative teams for communication, marketing, compliance and more.

We offer a summer youth music and marching program that travels around the United States competing against groups from all around the world. A winter-spring dance and flag ensemble that teaches dance and flag fundamentals, and competes with groups from all around the world. Community youth programs including workshops, after school programs, and more.

Since 2013 the organization has complete the following:

100% increase in membership
Grown inventory of professional instruments by triple while carrying minimal debt
Founded two additional competitive programs winning state and international titles
Grown administrative volunteer staff by 100%
Grown volunteer staff by 100%
Attainment level for participants rises yearly with each group of students moving on to other ensembles or opportunities such as college, military, trade school and more.
