After thrilling a near capacity crowd at last year’s The Classic – A Drum & Bugle Corps Competition, the Reading Buccaneers and Hempfield Band Boosters Club will once again sponsor the event at Hempfield High School’s Georgelis Law Firm Stadium in Landisville, PA, on July 6 at 7:00 PM.
This year’s show will be highlighted by a special exhibition performed by “The Commandant’s Own,” the United States Marine Drum & Bugle Corps.
The competition will feature drum corps from four states including Atlanta CV from Atlanta, GA, making their first early season and highly anticipated northern appearance.
Action on the field will be spirited as three of last year’s world championship top five will be competing. In addition to Atlanta CV, the competition features the Bushwackers (Princeton, NJ), the Skyliners (Scranton, PA), the White Sabers (Dansville, NY) and the Buccaneers (Reading, PA).
Legendary corps the Reading Buccaneer Alumni Corps and the Hawthorne Caballeros Alumni Corps will be performing in exhibition.
Tickets are $22 for reserved seats and $18 for general admission. Handicapped seating is available. For information and to purchase tickets, go to www.readingbuccaneers.org/theclassic.
Join us for an evening of outstanding family entertainment and see the splendor and spectacle of music in motion on a field of green. It will be quite a time in Lancaster County!
