Title in Birmingham Alabama!

To commemorate this amazing achievement, and to celebrate the golden years of drum corps – especially the ALL GIRL ERA! – Arbella is forming a Reunion Committee and a “40th Anniversary Tribute Corp”s to put together a big celebration and we hope you will join us!  Cardinal Alumni Phil Dennesen is lending a hand, following the resounding success of the Cardinal’s 70th reunion event of this past May. Brass Caption Head 75-79 GEORGE D’IORIO will be dusting off the original charts played by Arbella and leading rehearsals with the help of yet another Arbella alumni instructor JOE NUCCIO!  JOEL DUBE will be leading a color guard and we are hoping to also put together percussion division as well.  STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES!



Arbella Alumna SUE LEFRANCOIS PULEO will be heading up the Reunion Committee and is looking for Alumni to help coordinate the fun and reach out to other alumni who may not be on social media.
