Arbella Corps is excited to announce Arbella SoundSport, a performing arts ensemble for the 2018 season.

SoundSport is a league of Drum Corps International (DCI) that takes the excitement and challenge of the drum corps activity and places it into a smaller performance footprint, has fewer restrictions, and simplified adjudication.

SoundSport teams can focus on skills and performance development in a fan-friendly environment, giving the member an excellent experience and learning environment. The time and financial commitments are much lower and it is a perfect way to relive drum corps for the alumni, get a taste of the drum corps experience for newbies, or better prepare yourself for the fall marching band season.

Arbella Soundsport will focus on skills and performance development for members ages 15 and older, and will develop a 7-minute show that will be produced in a time-efficient rehearsal process. Depending on interest, this year’s team will be focused on brass with supplemental percussionsists.

All skill levels will be considered. Members may need to provide their own instruments depending on demand. We do have some percussion, mellophones, baris and contras available.  Yes, TROMBONES are welcome!

We do have a few requirements:

  • You must be willing to practice on your own as rehearsals will be light.
  • You must commit to performing at DCI East in Allentown (the first weekend of August).
  • You must be committed to AWESOME.  Positive attitudes need only reply!

There will be a small financial component.  We will come up with some fundraising and sponsorship opportunities to offset costs as much as possible.

We hope you will join us!  Sign up below to be added to our email list for updates.
