Crossmen Productions does an amazing job servicing their community of San Antonio. The opportunity they offer music students is top-notch. They love that is put into making their organization run is inspirational.

The struggle to fund this non-profit organization, as with most
non-profits, is always a challenge. The work they do to make things happen is never-ending.

Any help would always make a difference!

The Crossmen are living breathing examples of an organization that has created a culture of personal enrichment for their members channeled through the music arts activity. They have placed the emphasis on personal improvement and teamwork over winning trophies and have a devoted following of past members and fans nationwide. I look forward to their continued success within the Drum Corps arena.

The Great!

Many ways. Some of my former students have been members of the Crossmen and I still keep in touch with many friends that I used to compete against when I was a member of another DCI Corps.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Add a few key staff people to lead the show design/creative task and continue to capture talent from the large pool of students in the greater Texas region.

I marched with The Crossmen from 2004 to 2007. The friendships, connections, and acquaintances that I gained from my experiences with this organization are countless and still continue to manifest themselves all the time! I never could've imagined all that I have gotten from being a member, and now, being an alumni. There is a "Crossmen way" of living your life and for those of us that have had the privilege of being taught how to do so, we are forever grateful. This organization not only shaped my desired profession but also imparted me with invaluable knowledge that I could not have gotten elsewhere.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Every aspect of my life. Teaching, learning, commitments, decision making, dealing with adversity.

I think they are now headed in the best direction for its membership. Success is what this organization deserves after all that it has had to persevere through.

I love the Crossmen. They are the only drum and bugle corps I ever really wanted to be in, and I had a chance to march in a few of the most memorable shows in the history of the drum corps.

I fell in love with the Crossmen when I was a middle school student. I would practice with the
intention of earning a spot in the Crossmen, spending hours upon hours memorizing everything about the Corps; their history, how they held their instruments, and how they performed on the field.

When I finally had a chance to march with the corps I was 19 years old. I spent three summers marching soprano with the corps, practicing as hard as I could because I knew I was a part of something bigger than me...I was part of a team that's sole purpose was entertaining the audience.

Years later I am a high school band director. I send my students to the Crossmen any chance I get because I know that they will fall in love with the corps just like I did. There is no better drum corps in the activity than the Crossmen!

BOOTS!

The Great!

Life. I've dedicated my life to music education because of the experience I had in the Crossmen.

AL CHEZ trumpet player for THE LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN

I have been involved with THE CROSSMEN drum corps for 12 years now. Never being an alumnist of the corps I sometimes find myself wondering what I am doing helping a corps out of San Antonio Texas. As I live in NJ.
The
crossmen are a WORLD CLASS ORGANIZATION that has changed the lives of young performers for many years. The importance of making better human beings seems to be the mission statement of this group. I am very proud to be part of such a giving , helping group.
I receive much more rewards from helping them as I woud rever imagined.

Marching with the Crossmen Drum & Bugle Corps gave me the confidence to no longer be afraid of living my own life, and friendships that I will never be able to replace. Spending 12 hours a day in the hot sun, rehearsing the same show for 2 1/2 months, and dealing with the same group of people for all that time taught me more about dedication than I ever thought it would. I can now pursue anything and everything I want and know that I can achieve excellence in all fields of expertise. Thank you, Crossmen.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

All areas of my life.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Ask that discounts be given on tour fees based on the number of years one has spent with the corps. If this is not possible, an overall reduction in fees would be ideal.

Being a Part of The Crossmen has improved my life by showing me how to be more responsible and to take ownership of my responsibilities. Ive also learned great time managment skills that have helped me in college. Along with those skills I have made so many new friends that I would have never met without the Crossmen. I love this oragnization and will miss it after I ageout.
