Nexus withdraw from 2015 contest season


Announcement by Nexus Drum & Bugle Corps


It is with great sadness, that I have to report that, Nexus Drum and Bugle Corps will be withdrawing from all Drum Corps shows for the 2015 season. 

With a reduced membership and spiralling costs, it has been decided by the Nexus Performing Arts Management Committee, that committing to the summer circuits would seriously put the group at risk of closure.

The corps have spent many years focusing on a competitive summer season and now feel it is time to take some time out to recruit and dedicate finances, time and effort, towards securing and developing the organisation. These activities will include major local recruitment drives, focused on introducing younger people into the organisation and at the same time, developing new and exciting performance opportunities for its membership. 

Although not a competitive unit on the drum corps field in 2015, the corps will remain active and is working hard to secure its future.

The committee would like to thank all of its staff, instructors and members for their hard work in trying to make 2015 a reality. 

We wish DCUK, DCE and all its member corps good luck for the 2015 season.
