Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Arts & Culture, Bands & Ensembles

Mission: We are committed to teaching our members the life skills they need to succeed through music education and performance.

Programs: The crossmen drum corps is a program that assists young people on the path to become wonderful human beings through the participation in the arts. The crossmen provide music education and also life-lessons for their alumni to carry with them into their future lives as adults. Students learn important life skills including leadership, goal setting, and conflict resolution. The drum corps includes opportunities for students to exercise their potential not only as musicians, but as complete human beings. There are 158 members who participate in the drum corps. The crossmen hold experience camps in the early fall each year where approximately 521 students ranging from the ages of 14-21 come together to learn what it is like to be a member of a world class drum corps and audition for a spot if they so choose. They spend a weekend of instruction with our professional staff with lessons in both music and visual skills. The crossmen host an experience day each june where 100 or more young people come to interact and receive music education from both the members of the corps as well as professional staff.

Life lessons taught and lifetime experiences gained by all who become Crossmen. It is a first class organization that strives to improve the lives of all its members. I would not trade my years of experiences associated with drum corps for all the money in the world.

I have donated to Crossmen Productions for the past 3 years. The experience they provide to young musicians is surpassed by no other organization. They have a reputation for professionalism in their field, and for staffing some of the most talented music educators. Any young musician would be happy to share their summers with the Crossmen.

I credit the Crossmen with the success I've had in life. It tought me self-discipline and how to give 100% to achieve a goal.

I'll never forget.

Crossmen is more than musicians marching on a field. It is a family that never stops growing. No matter when you marched or for how long you were actively involved once you've been part of the Crossmen you will always be considered as part of the family. I marched for only one year with the Crossmen in 1982 but the organization is so welcoming and the bonds formed are so strong that I kept contact with more people from my Crossmen family than I have with the members of the other corps I marched with for 7 years. In my heart, that says a lot ...
