This year will be the most exciting ever for The Blue Devils as we
celebrate FIFTY years of excellence! BD alumni will play a very
important part in this celebration and we want to make sure you get all
the information about how to participate.
We are EXCITED to announce TWO BD ALUMNI PEFORMANCES for summer 2007! The Alumni Ensemble will perform at both Northern California Drum Corps Shows! Precision West and DCI West Championships August 4th at Stanford
In addition, we want you to know that we have planned an
unprecedented series of events this season, ranging from the return of
favorites like the Spring Concert at the Pavilion in May, to Opening Day of the 2007 season in June, to an action-packed “Grand Celebration Weekend” at Stanford University on August 3 & 4. This spectacular celebration weekend includes a Grand Gala, a Reunion BBQ and the Drum Corps International West Regional
in the new stadium at Stanford. We’ve even booked a block of
rooms at the Sheraton Palo Alto so you can keep the party going and
walk to the events!
The excitement continues as alumni and friends embark on a “Drum Corps
Fantasy Tour,” culminating in the long-time dream of every West Coast
drum corps fan: The Drum Corps International World Championships
at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA! With DCI booked into
Indianapolis through 2017, this truly is a once-in-a-lifetime event!
Special BD Alumni events during Championship week will include:
We are currently working on two BD ALUMNI performances:
- Alumni and donor breakfast with the corps on Thursday
- Friday night Alumni party at the Rose Bowl
- Other alumni events in and around Pasadena
- With the 2007 BDs at Precision West on June 16th.
- With the SCV alumni and the 2007 SCV and BD performers at the DCI West Regional at Stanford on August 4.
We would perform one or possibly two songs and the music would be
available online via our web page. When we have a better idea of
the numbers interested, we will notify you of sections that will be
participating, instrumentation, equipment, rehearsal gatherings and scheduling.
We’d love to have you participate!

Your participation fee of $75 includes a ticket to the Grand Celebration Part August 3rd and Saturday afternoon BBQ and a Polo Shirt . You will also need to purchase at least one seat for both Precision West and DCI West at Stanford. There may be some additional costs.
As a performer, one of the lessons you learned was that the more you
gave the more you got. This year more than ever, giving to The
Blue Devils reaps great rewards. If you donate $50 and above you
can receive EXCLUSIVE ACCESS to the BEST SEATS at all events through March 31 and FIRST ACCESS to all ticket sales. This includes
the BEST SEATS the Rose Bowl has to offer for all three nights of the
2007 DCI Championships! I
Please join us in honoring the legacy of excellence that you helped
build! Your involvement will ensure the success of these events,
so contact your old BD friends, pass the word, get back together again
to enjoy and support The Blue Devils and this summer’s celebration of
50 Years of BD!
