Questions & Answers

Below you will find answers to many common questions about the VMAPA's Front & Center 2020 Campaign

The VMAPA’s Front & Center campaign is a 7 hour virtual fundraising event that bring Vanguard fans, alumni, staff, and members together. On this day, it’s all about our great organization and the people who make Vanguard Music and Performing Arts so special!

Alumni, members, instructors, staff, family, and friends of Santa Clara Vanguard are encouraged to stand with us, Front & Center and make a gift to support the future of the organization.

Our goal: 1,967 individuals make a donation of any amount to support the future of  the Vanguard Music and Performing Arts organization!

The Santa Clara Vanguard (SCV) Drum & Bugle Corps was formed in 1967 in Santa Clara, California. Over the years, the Santa Clara Vanguard has developed a long-standing reputation for dignity and excellence.

SCV has the distinction of being the only organization to be a finalist in Drum Corps International (DCI) World Championships since the inception of DCI in 1972. We were the first organization in Drum Corps International (DCI) history to have a World Class and Open Class Champion; along with being the first organization to have a World Class and Open Class (formerly Division II) corps in the elite Top 17 (Semifinals) of DCI World Championship competitions. The SCV organization has two competitive drum and bugle corps, the Vanguard and the Vanguard Cadets, the Vanguard Winter Guard, Winter Percussion and Community Arts Program.
