Calling all fans, friends and alumni:

Pioneer can really use your support as we work through a recent incident involving one of our support vehicles.

The camper that we use for our staff and corps director, was involved in an accident in the state of Iowa in mid July. While driving on a back road out of a housing site, the vehicle failed to negotiate a steep hill and sharp turn. The weight of the attached trailer and gear could not stop it and it slid over the hill into someone's yard. Nobody was injured, but the camper has been declared a total loss.

social 10The Pioneer Corps is in need of 4 individuals to perform in our Baritone Section for the 2017 Season. Some openings in other sections are also available, but we need musicians of high energy to fill our baritone spots. Lack of experience is ok. We can train you as long as you have the energy and spunk that seems to be the stereotype of a baritone player!

In Pioneer, a D.C.I. World Class Corps, we have lots of traveling opportunities throughout the U.S.A. You will have new friends from literally all over the world who are part of our Pioneer Corps Family. You will perform in front of thousands of cheering fans as we compete in a full summer D.C.I. tour. You will be performing some of the favorites from the ever popular Broadway production of Les Miserables. This opportunity of a lifetime and great value can be yours as a member of the 2017 Pioneer Corps!

Many of the corps directors and instructors were also baritone performers in their youth. Could leadership skills be an offshoot of playing baritone??? Nobody knows for sure, but what is for sure is that there are many opportunities for you to benefit on the Pioneer Corps.!

Call or email the Pioneer Corps Office today for some free information, as well as a DVD of the corps. Also ask us for the contact information of the instructional staff person who will work with you. Plan to be at our next Rehearsal Camp Weekend in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on April 38-29-30th. So if you want to become a Pioneer baritone, let’s make it happen!
