Crossmen Productions, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) education and youth development organization assisting young people in becoming outstanding individuals through music and the performing arts. Since our founding in October 1974, Crossmen DCI groups have enriched and shaped the lives of young musicians and performers.
Family, honesty, perseverance, dedication, independence, interdependence and excellence are taught and practiced by each and every member at Crossmen. We are committed to teaching our members the life skills they need to succeed.
Modern drum corps are comprised of 165 performers who range in age from about 14 to 22. Each corps is made up of brass musicians, percussionists and a color guard. They perform an 11-minute program on a standard football field. Programs are extravagant displays of musical excellence, marching precision, color, drama, dance and emotion. All members of the corps (except the front percussion ensemble) march in intricate formations which are coordinated with the musical productions.
