The WNY Alumni Drum and Bugle Corps regret to announce we are cancelling our 2020 parade season. In the face of this global pandemic the most responsible thing to do for the safety of our members is simply not be in close proximity to each other or the public. Reports from parade organizers are that they are cancelling their events to comply with social distancing guidelines and the Corps board agrees that it is necessary that we also follow these guidelines until such time as we have a way to combat this virus in a way that does not threaten the health of our members.
There are some undeniable truths about bugles. We are pushing as much air from our lungs around as we can! This is definitely a problem regarding the spread of COVID-19.
In the meantime, we hope to engage with Corps members remotely throughout the summer and try to keep our spirits and our chops up so that whenever we can perform again we will be ready to go. Anyone interested in contacting the Corps can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you and stay safe. We hope to make music and perform in local parades with you all again soon!
