I may be the only Hillsboro native who "made the line" to become a member of a world class drum and bugle corps.
In the past couple of years two different corps have stopped in Hillsboro for a needed practice site for a day.
This is a fantastic activity for high school and college-aged young adults. They receive very high-quality education in music and performance and each member pays to be able to march after going through several auditions and intense competition just to become a member.
Throughout a summer, countless schools and universities across the country provide facilities for a corps to practice and perhaps spend a night. Thank you to the school district for allowing these non-profit corps to use facilities.
