Santa Clara Vanguard Drum & Bugle Corps to play in Denair

The Santa Clara Vanguard, a 100-member drum and bugle corps, practices in Denair this week before starting a summer tour that will conclude at the Drum Corps International Southwestern Championships in San Antonio in July.

Members practice up to 12 hours a day.

To show their thanks to the community for hosting the corps this week, the Vanguard will present a free show this evening at Denair High School, 3431 Lester Road.

The corps will perform its regular show and play additional musical selections, as well as giving some demonstrations on the corps' history and rehearsal techniques.
