The Optimists Alumni Drum & Bugle Corps
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
WELCOME to the official website of the Optimists Alumni Drum & Bugle Corps.
This is the place for you to Learn About Our Corps, its History, Find Out About Joining and to keep current with its plans and progress. If you're feeling nostalgic, why not visit our Photo Gallery. You'll find photos that range from the initial Boy Scout band in the 1950s all the way to our most recent performance. And it's not just about us. Our Photo Galleries include shots of many other corps.
Visitors are welcome at our rehearsals. If you would like to attend a rehearsal, please visit our Combined Schedule page to learn the dates and locations of our rehearsals.

Historical Video Footage
We are looking for video footage of Opti Corps, the Toronto Optimists and the Seneca Optimists. This is a search for memories, not great technique. If you have video footage that you would like to donate to the corps, please contact Bob Carell (toronto_optimist at rogers.com).
If you want to see the videos that we already have, please visit our Video page.
