The group from Dubuque, Iowa, has placed in the top 12 at the Drum Corps International World Class finals eight times.

The rehearsal will be held at both the high school track and elementary soccer field area weather permitting.


The public is invited to watch both the Colts Drum and Bugle Corps from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. There is no cost to attend.

Spectators are asked to bring lawn chairs to the high school track to enjoy the show. Spectators are also respectfully asked to limit distractions by placing cell phones on silent, not taking phone calls and no noise makers.


More about the Colts:

The Colts are comprised of 150 members, more than 30 staff members and hundreds of volunteers. Membership comes from all over the nation and overseas. Rehearsals and auditions take place in November. The group meets one weekend a month, for a rehearsal camp until June, when they go on tour until mid-August. They are also only one of three corps to support a feeder corps, the Colt Cadets, which is open to children ages 11 to 17-years-old.

The corps contains three components: brass, percussion, and color guard. Each of these captions is further divided into sections. Adding these three captions together plus two drum majors gives the group the maximum World Class sanctioned member limit of 150.
