Keeping Our Memories Alive


The St Rita’s Brassmen and The St. Joseph Patron Cadets Tribute and Historical Preservation Website was created to save the record of our historical accomplishments on and off the drum corps field. It is here to “Mark our Time” in drum corps history and to tell “our story, our way”.

The website has since been developed to pay homage to our drum corps mentors, who later became our friends in our adult life.

Lastly, the site exists to celebrate our life together as a special family, a drum corps family.

Alumni members can look back and share their thoughts, memories and pictures during one of the ‘BEST TIMES” of their lives. A time when

“ The world would stand still and we did nothing but eat, sleep and breathe drum corps.”
