COVID-19 UPDATE: Vanguard Cancels 2020 Summer Tour
Vanguard Music and Performing Arts (VMAPA), parent organization of the world champion Vanguard and Vanguard Cadets Drum and Bugle Corps, based in Santa Clara, California, today announced that neither the Vanguard nor the Vanguard Cadets will travel or perform across the country this summer. The decision corresponds with the cancellation of the 2020 Drum Corps International summer tour due to health and safety concerns associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.
“No one wanted to cancel the summer tour, but after many discussions with our Vanguard and Vanguard Cadets leadership, medical teams, program directors and our board of directors trying to create a possible path forward it became apparent that this was the right action to take,” said Brett Bernardini, Executive Director, VMAPA.
