Each summer Bluecoats operates three incredible shows in the Northeast Ohio and Eastern Pennsylvania communities. More than 10,000 community members and drum corps fans attend our “Three Great Shows” each summer and get a glimpse of the drum corps experience and how Bluecoats brings life-changing performing arts experiences to young people.
We wanted a way to tell more of the Bluecoats story to our guests, and to the broader Canton community. Bluecoats reaches thousands of young people each year, not only via the Bluecoats Drum & Bugle Corps, but other programming like the Artistry IN BLUE, Rhythm IN BLUE, Bluecoats Indoor, and our partnership with enRICHment to produce a community drumline for the young people of greater Canton.
The Bluecoats Annual Program is our response to the desire to bring the Bluecoats story to our community. This 80-page publication is in part a program for our three Drum Corps International shows, in part an annual report of the Bluecoats organization, and in part a magazine celebrating one year’s worth of programming, leadership, and growth at Bluecoats.

We’re grateful to our local partners and sponsors that placed ads in this first edition of the Bluecoats Annual Program. This publication is an opportunity for us to showcase the amazing Performance Partners that provide us with the best equipment any performing arts ensemble can dream of. We also were able to feature several of our Community Partners who work with us within the Stark County and greater Cleveland communities to bring world-class performing arts programming to our region.
