What type of time commitment does Phenom require?

Phenom is constructed to operate with a minimal impact on your ‘normal summer’ schedule while still fostering an educationally based environment for you to succeed as a performer in the pageantry arts. There is still the very important need to make sure you are fully able to commit to all of the Phenom summer schedule before you sign your membership contract.


The 2021 Phenom daily schedule will be 12 hours in length and follow this breakdown:


8:00am - 8:45am - Arrival & Prep for Day

9:00am - 12:00pm - Rehearsal

12:00pm - 1:00pm - Meal Break

1:00pm - 4:00pm - Rehearsal

4:00pm - 5:00pm - Meal Break

5:00pm - 9:00pm - Rehearsal

9:00pm - 9:30pm - Clean Up & Dismissal


The time commitment with the ensemble is very important, and your attendance is required for each and every rehearsal. You will be expected to come fully prepared mentally, musically, and physically.

If I get a membership contract, how much does the season cost?

Phenom Drum & Bugle Corps is constantly striving to be one of the most affordable summer music performance opportunities in Arizona and across Drum Corps International.


The following will outline what it will cost to be a member of Phenom for the 2021 season:

2021 Audition/Registration Fee: Free!


2021 Membership and Tour Fee: To Be Determined


There may be additional costs for you personally this season with Phenom.

Some factors to consider could include things such as:


  • Cost of gas for travel to and from rehearsals      (We encourage you to carpool with other members)

  • Cost of meals on food breaks                             (Bring a cooler lunch to keep costs low)

  • Any repair fees that are required if damage is made to an instrument issued to you by Phenom

  • Mouthpiece, valve oil, slide grease, etc. Everything to keep your instrument in proper working order at all times

  • Uniform apparel; compression shorts, body tights, performance shoes, etc.
