Is Drum Corps Expensive?
The cost to march a DCA corps is on par with that of a season of indoor winds, color guard, or percussion based on 2018 reported data. You can expect membership in a corps to range from $400 to $1600 for most corps as well as some additional fundraising. Many corps offer scholarships to enable more people to participate. Drum Corps Associates’ member corps offer a schedule that has rehearsals, and competitions that are regionally located requiring less travel. Because of this the cost to participate as a member of a DCA corps is not only a great value, but a great experience!
