Optimists Alumni Corps

The Optimists Alumni Drum Corps is a self-supporting brass and percussion ensemble based out of the Greater Toronto Area in Ontario, Canada. Established in 2003 with a large contingent of previous members of the Toronto Optimists Drum and Bugle Corps, the group began it's continued journey of quality performances year after year.


In 2015, the group scaled back and reinvented itself as a show band based on the Mardigras theme. Since that time, they have performed throughout Southern Ontario, the USA, and South Korea.

Many of our current members performed with world class drum corps during the past 6 decades. Several also participate in other ensembles and community concert bands/orchestras. We enjoy entertaining others and we strive to strike a balance between the demands of performing excellence, on one hand, and our personal lives and families on the other.

If you have the time and an interest in sharing our dedication and enthusiasm, please contact us for more information on how to join. You are also welcome to come see us at one of our rehearsals or performances (see our Event Schedule).
