MIGHTY ST. JOE'S WANTS YOU FOR 2016
RECRUITING - OPENINGS IN ALL SECTIONS, ESPECIALLY LOOKING FOR LEAD SOPRANOS AND BARITONES.
As 2016 is upon us, Mighty St. Joe's Alumni Drum and Bugle Corps is proud to continue to be one of the oldest, active alumni corps still participating in events year round. Our members are dedicated to keeping the "good-times, old times" alive in the drum corps world and look forward to the challenges facing them as each new season approaches. As MSJ enters another year there has been a conscious decision to look for more events that suit our current members and those who may not be able to keep up with the rigors of marching and playing on a regular basis. Currently the corps has committed to several indoor and outdoor standstill concerts for 2016 and is actively pursuing more of these types of events. This doesn't mean that the corps is giving up on doing parades, which so many of us enjoy. It just means management and the staff of the corps are looking at ways to attract more people who may not be able to keep up with certain parts of the activity that MSJ has been so well respected for in the past. The corps is one of the only active groups still in demand in the WNY area and all of us look forward to another successful season in 2016. So come out, check out the corps and be a part of this great organization...see the corps' rehearsal schedule for more info on rehearsals for 2016. Think of it as an opportunity, not a commitment, to do something so many of us have enjoyed for years - entertaining the only way real drum corps people like it.
MSJ 2016 Mission Statement
Our goals are to embrace the corpsí dedication and enthusiasm to our performances, along with realizing the need for discipline, hard work and persistence. Managementís desire is to create an environment where everyone has the opportunity to play while continuing to promote old-time, good time drum corps entertainment through engaging in concerts, parades, exhibitions, and similar events. Also our mission is to promote musicianship, friendship and teamwork among the members of this organization to encourage personal growth and a sense of belonging to the MSJ Family, and to recognize and applaud our peers for their many successes throughout the year.
