Oregon Crusaders Announces #OC17 Brass Team

Innovation and growth seen for 2017

Oregon Crusaders is excited to announce its 2017 brass team, led by brass caption supervisor Brad Green and brass caption head Tim Snyder. Building upon several years of growth as Drum Corps International (DCI) newest world-class corps, and coming off its successful 2016 program “Hunted”, the 2017 brass team will grow with new members added from across the drum corps and music education activity.


“We are thrilled to be part of this great Oregon Crusaders story”, said Tim Snyder. “The tradition of innovation that OC has begun is a great foundation for us to build upon, and we’ve been able to already attract some of the activity’s finest educators.”

“As we reach nationally and internationally to attract the best brass talent, we know that we’ve already created something special, but we’re going to grow it even more.” said Brad Green. “Our System Blue instrument partnership, combined with Tim’s leadership, great educators returning and many being added, 2017 will be an explosive year for the 2017 brass line.”
