Centerville Band hosts several special events throughout the year! These events account for the greatest share of fundraising and it wouldn’t be possible without the support of our volunteer parents, students, and alumni!
Check out the specific pages for further details on each event…
Soaring Sounds Drum Corps Competition – Late July/Early August is near the peak of the summer drums corps season. Every year around this time the Centerville Band Boosters partner up Drum Corps International to host Soaring Sounds! We are one of the longest running shows of its kind in the country and have been a Drum Corps International (DCI) tradition since 1980. DCI is known as “Marching Music’s Major League” and our show features World Class corps made up primarily of college age members. We draw a diverse group of spectators from all over the Miami Valley, with a history of healthy crowds of 4-5,000 fans. Booster Volunteer Needs: Ticketing, parking, hospitality, ushers, concessions/sales, marketing/promotion, tabulation assistants.
