85th AnniversaryWe are thrilled to announce that in 2019 we will be celebrating the 85th Anniversary of the Cadets Drum and Bugle Corps along with 50 Years of Women in The Cadets.

As part of our celebration, we are happy to announce we will be organizing the 85th Anniversary Alumni Corps to perform this summer. We are also proud to announce alumnus Joe Reichert will be the Corps Director for the Alumni Corps. Joe is currently the Head Band Director for the Adamson High School Band in the Dallas Independent School District in Dallas, TX. He marched in the 1992 and 1993 Cadets, and was a Drum Major in 1995, serving on the Cadets instructional staff in 1997 and 1998.

Anyone interested in working on the planning committee for the Alumni Corps should contact Joe at by November 16th. Further information regarding the Alumni Corps will be released in December with registration opening in January.

There will be additional ways we will celebrate this very special year ahead, so watch for us to announce more information for Cadets family and fans.


Most Sincerely,
Vicki Ferrence Ray
