Maine corps to hold organizational meeting

An organizational meeting for Atlantic Guardian Drum and Bugle Corps, will be held February 23 at 5:00 PM at the Children’s Theatre of Maine, in Portland, Community Musical Arts has announced.

Along with the Atlantic Guardian drum and bugle corps, CMA intends to start a Brazilian Samba-school type of percussion ensemble as well as a training academy for beginning flag twirlers.

Drum and bugle corps were last seen in Portland in the late 1970s. CMA was created with the intention of giving today’s youth a chance to experience the discipline, musicianship and community of this musical idiom.

More information is available from the corps’ Web site at www.AtlanticGuardian.org.

CMA invites alumni of Portland’s corps — the Dirigo Jets, the Deering Defenders, Peaks Island’s own 5th Maine Regiment and the venerable H. T. Andrews Sabres, as well as genuine drum corps nuts and interested parties to join them February 23 to revive an exciting part of Southern Maine’s community tradition.

For more information, contact James Alberty, startup coordinator, at info@AtlanticGuardian.org, (207) 775-1661 or P.O. Box 1416 Portland, ME 04104-1416.
