Your Life-Changing Journey Begins Here

Founded in 1956, Phantom Regiment is proud of our competitive success, including two DCI World Championships (1996,2008) and countless, iconic productions. However, our crowning achievement is not what we have accomplished on the field, but the many notable and successful individuals who call themselves Phantom Regiment alumni.

Over the last 65 years, our world-renowned educators have prepared thousands of young-people to become leaders in their classrooms, communities, businesses, and beyond through the power of performing arts.

Now, it’s your turn.

Along with DCI and our colleagues from other drum corps, we are carefully watching the COVID-19 situation and the steps that are being taken to control this pandemic. The DCI member corps have been meeting on a regular basis to discuss and work through the challenges of a 2021 tour in order to give the drum corps experience we all expect, in a positive and safe environment.

Studies have shown that women and people of color are less likely to apply for positions unless they believe they meet every one of the qualifications as outlined in a role description. We are most interested in finding the best candidates for membership in our drum corps, and that candidate may be one who comes from a less traditional background. We would encourage you to apply to audition, even if you don’t believe you meet all of the qualifications described in the application.
We also acknowledge that there are often barriers to participation in drum corps that we are unaware of. If you are experiencing an obstacle, please let us know by filling out this short form.
