Mission: The purpose of The White Sabers Drum and Bugle Corps is to promote the study and improvement of the marching arts through engaging in contests, parades, exhibitions, and similar events; to promote musicianship, friendship, sociability, and culture among the members of the organization; and to promote personal growth and a sense of belonging for all members through the process of learning to work as a team toward the common goal of maintaining a successful Drum and Bugle Corps.
The White Sabers Drum and Bugle Corps was organized in 1928 under the sponsorship of the American Legion Daniel Goho Post #87 from Dansville, NY and later became independent in 1957. In 1994, after about 14 years of absence from the drum corps world, several former White Sabers members organized an alumni reunion, and an interest in performing was revived. In 2005, the White Sabers returned to the field as a competitive Class A drum corps. The following year, we competed and placed second in our first DCA World Championships in Rochester, NY on September 3, 2006. This was only our second attempt at competing in the preliminary competition to make it into finals. The membership dedicated their finals performance at the night show to Pete and Leslie Amico in deep appreciation of their supporting efforts in helping make this drum corps dream come true. The White Sabers are a two time, back to back DCA Class A world champions and have made Open Class Finals each year they’ve competed in it since 2015. The Corps is coming off of their highest placement in Open Class, placing 4th in 2019.
