Conquistadors Drum & Bugle Corps Announces 2015 Program
Posted by Webmaster | Date: 2014.11.11


The Conquistadors Drum & Bugle Corps is pleased to announce it's 2015 program entitled "La Fiesta Popular." The corps will be performing arrangements of three pop music hits with a Latin style twist that is guaranteed to be entertaining. The corps will open with a rendition of the Jennifer Lopez/Pitbull hit "Dance Again" from 2012. The program will continue with the slightly mysterious "Burn" by Ellie Goulding. The song was made popular with the release of the film "Divergent" and the corps will take an interesting twist on the song that has to wait to be seen. The show will close with Don Omar's "Zumba" which is inspired by the dance fitness craze of the same name. The corps will pull out all the stops on this one to bring the audience on a journey through the driving rhythms and musical colors that simulate a fiesta on the beaches of Puerto Rico.


The corps is now recruiting for the 2015 season and limited spots are available. Please contact us for more information on membership.

October Is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Posted by Webmaster | Date: 2014.10.01


For the 3rd year, we are turning our site pink for breast cancer awareness month. Below are some of the surprising facts on the disease brought to us by the National Breast Cancer Foundation:


  • One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.
  • Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women.
  • Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women.
  • Each year it is estimated that over 220,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,000 will die.
  • Although breast cancer in men is rare, an estimated 2,150 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and approximately 410 will die each year.


Join us as we continue to raise awareness by educating yourself. Visit the Susan G. Komen website for more information.
