Started in 1993 with 33 students, today PACIFIC CREST is one of North America’s leading performing groups in the marching arts.
Our 150-member Drum and Bugle Corps travels and performs throughout the US each summer in front of 100,000 spectators. The ensemble has also appeared in cinema broadcasts, on television shows and commercials, and in world-class venues, including the Orange County Performing Arts Center and the Rose Bowl.
Pacific Crest’s highly skilled faculty, arrangers, and choreographers – many are credentialed music teachers and/or professional performers — share a love for music and dance, as well as the desire to help talented and motivated students strive for personal excellence. They were once student performers, themselves, and are now giving back to the community that gave so much to them.
Events, education programs, and school outreach round out the offerings at Pacific Crest, enabling the organization to serve more than 2,500 high school and college students throughout Southern California.
As a member of Drum Corps International (DCI), a nonprofit organization serving drum and bugle corps, Pacific Crest represents the City of Diamond Bar and the Southern California Region as one of 22 teams in Marching Music’s Major Leagues.
