Santa Clara Vanguard Drum & Bugle Corps bows out with fanfare

About 300 people turned out Thursday night for a free show offered by the elite Santa Clara Vanguard Drum & Bugle Corps to say “thank you for putting up with the practice noise” during its three week “spring training” here before beginning its 2018 national tour next month. The corps – based in Santa Clara, California – is made up of 154 college-age brass players, percussionists and color guard members from throughout the U.S. and other countries. The show at SOU Raider Stadium lasted about 20 minutes and earned a standing ovation at the end. The group will return for Ashland’s Fourth of July Parade.
