    Hello,
    I am the Asst. Director of the United States Naval Academy Drum and Bugle Corps. We are the oldest continually active Drum and Bugle Corps in existence. We field a Marching ensemble consisting of Brass and Percussion and provide musical support to the Plebe regiment during Plebe summer and to the Brigade of Midshipmen during the Academic year. We perform at Halftime during football games as well as noon meal formations and Formal Parades. If you have any questions feel free to post here or email me at decapio@usna.edu

    Very Respectfully,
    Rich DeCapio

    Can students just participate in an enseamble band and not in the marching band? Or do they have to participate in both groups?

    Yes, there are 11 musical ensembles at the naval academy including a Jazz band, an Orchestra and an orchestra for the musical production.

    Hello! Thank you for offering your help on this forum!

    I know this may be a bit outside of your area of expertise but I figured I would ask anyways. Do you know what kind of opportunities there are for running tech for theatrical productions?

    There are 2 drama productions each year, a drama in the fall and a musical in the spring.
