let's just say Santa has an extra special gift for South Texas this year:

Are you a member of a drum & bugle corps (DCI, DCA, etc.) or other pageantry arts organization?
- or -
Are you auditioning for a drum corps this year?
Members of drum corps and other pageantry arts associations will be gathering the first weekend of December in Rockport, TX to celebrate Screaming Christmas. Screaming Christmas is about bringing together the pageantry arts to perform en masse and celebrate Christmas, Texas style - Loud, Intense, and SCREAMING.

Join us for food, performances, master clinics, drum corps videos and, of course, drum corps camaraderie!

2008 and Beyond

What happens in 2008 is yet to be determined.

We *WILL* have a small brass/percussion ensemble to get out in the community and start getting the name out there, sponsorships, recruiting, etc.

We *WILL* attend the DCA shows in TX for 2008 as an exhibition unit called a MINI-CORPS

We *MAY* attend DCA World Championships to compete in the Mini-Corps Championship

We *ARE CONSIDERING* hosting a DCA show in 2009 here in the Rockport/Corpus Christi area, if the stars align sooner, we may just jump on that in 2008

But.. we WILL be kicking off the corps with Screaming Christmas in December, in preparations for a first rehearsal in January 2008.

The Scream Machine isn't born yet... but we are expecting
