We Are The Corps

It all started in 1948 when our founder, Don Warren, brought Troop 111 up from a local Chicago Boy Scout unit to what has become a legendary force in the drum corps activity.

20 national championships later, including seven Drum Corps International (DCI) World Championships since 1992, The Cavaliers continue to deliver on our mission of creating leaders through the performing arts. We do this by providing an unmatched, life-changing educational experience for the students who come through our programs.

By contributing financial gifts or your time to The Cavaliers, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, you have a hand in shaping the lives of young people for the better.


Support the Cavaliers by joining our CLUB 48 giving program for friends, family, and fans.
Your donation helps the Corps continue to deliver cutting edge content and experiences.



The Cavaliers depend on a team of dedicated volunteers to get us down the road each summer and are always looking to add new members to our family.


The GEARS program was established to alow our alumni to remain connected with the corps. Your donation helps ensure the next generation of Cavaliers share in your experience and continue the traditions we all hold dear.
