Coventry Corps of Drums
The Corps was formed in 1947 and consists of members between the ages of 8 to 25 years. The City of Coventry Corps of Drums continues to provide their highly professional performances and impress audiences with their precision marching and musical arrangements. The uniform style and colouring reflects their traditional British background and the majority of their movements are based on Service Drill Manuals with extra movements added to reflect the changing moods of the music – all culminating in highly polished performances in a parade, arena or even a concert. The Corps also has a full Herald Party, which play ceremonial fanfares at many events throughout the year. The band travel extensively throughout the UK and overseas to perform. The band is highly respected by all of their peers and repeatedly receive standing ovations wherever they play.
