The  Optimists  Alumni  Drum  &  Bugle  Corps

Toronto, Ontario, Canada

. . . March On!

Legends V & Reunion 2013

Come to the Legends V show to enjoy drum corps, meet old friends, make new friends and reminisce

Did you know that Barry Bell and Lorne Ferrazzutti who instructed the 1958 Toronto Optimists (and much longer!) as well as 1958 members Joe Gianna and Warren Berger are with the Optimists Alumni and still performing? Come out and see them!

For former Optimists, let’s celebrate. We've been having reunions every five years and the last one was our 50th, in 2008. This will be our 2013 reunion as well as a corps show. There's a lot to celebrate. 2013 is the 10th anniversary of the first performance of the Optimists Alumni, the 55th anniversary of the first Nationals won by the Toronto Optimists, the 27th anniversary of the formation of the Seneca Optimists and the 5th anniversary of the Legends show! What a wonderful opportunity for all former Optimists to come together and celebrate the good times we had.

Mark August 17 on your calendar and bring your friends and family to enjoy some good, old-fashioned drum corps!
