About Cadence Drum and Bugle Corps
Cadence Drum & Bugle Corps is a registered charity (1021652) with an education oriented focus dedicated to providing its members with a unique performing experience. Cadence are members of Drum Corps United Kingdom (DCUK) and compete annually in the DCUK Championships which is part of the Drum Corps Europe (DCE) Summer Music Games. Additionally, Cadence appear in various events including, parades, exhibitions, TV shows, adverts and corporate functions.
We cater for almost 100 young people and adults across three performance groups based primarily on age. Our Cadets and Juniors are aimed at younger performers with little or no experience. These groups usually cater for young people from five years old, once members reach a certain level of ability and experience we would encourage a move into the Main Corps.
Our Main Corps has no upper age limit and many of the current performers in the 2015 Main Corps have been a part of the Cadence Organisation since 2008 progressing through the ranks. Our members mainly come from the Surrey/Berkshire area but we have a number of current performers who travel from Sussex, Kent, Hampshire and even as far afield as bonnie Scotland!
Although we are a competitive Drum & Bugle Corps our ethos has and always will be to offer any willing participant a place within our organisation. Behind the performers we have a dedicated team of educators who all give their time and skills free of charge. There are always positions available for anyone willing to offer their assistance as part of our support team, we are always in need of dedicated people to drive vehicles, clean/mend uniforms, move equipment and many other tasks that are vital to keep this organisation on the road and on the field.
