New Atlantic Guardian Drum and Bugle Corps to host open house October 29

Portland, ME — Community Musical Arts is pleased to invite all interested parties to an open house for Atlantic Guardian Drum and Bugle Corps to be on Friday, October 29, at 5:30 PM in the band room of Portland High School, 284 Cumberland Avenue, next to the Portland Public Market.

Parents, students and other corps supporters are invited to hear about the new group. Performers will then break into brass, percussion and color guard sections for an open rehearsal.

Specific information can be found on the corps” Web site at www.AtlanticGuardian.org or by calling Jim Alberty at 207.775.1661.

Atlantic Guardian now owns percussion equipment, is leasing a state-of-the-art set of B-flag brass instruments from the 21st Century Drum and Bugle Corps Foundation of Madison, WI, and has assembled a teaching team of some of the top talent in the marching arts in Southern Maine.

Maine has a great tradition of drum corps going back to the original H.T. Andrews American Legion corps of 1934. Many people in the Casco Bay area remember or even marched with groups like the Pinetree Warriors, the Forest City Ambassadors, the Dirigo Jets, the 5th Maine Regiment and the
20th Maine Regiment.

A gallery of pictures from Maineā€šs drum corps past can be found on the corps’ Web site.

The mission of Atlantic Guardian is to train members at the highest possible level of the marching arts and then share that training with the community at large through parades, clinics, competitions and concerts.

Community Musical Arts is a 501(c)(3) organization. All donations are tax deductable.
