2016 Local Corps Member: Roy Stewart

Performing Corps: Music City


Appearing for the first time at DRUMS on the OHIO this year is Music City Drum and Bugle Corps from Nashville, TN. And performing for his second season with Music City is Tri-State native Roy Stewart of Flora, IL. Roy is a 2014 graduate of Flora High School and currently studies music education at Olney Central College.

Roy joined Music City last year and says he loved every second of his experience. “I gained another family while marching last season and we are already becoming a family this season with 2016 Music City members. Drum corps has helped my musical talents greatly with breathing in time, playing in time, and my marching techniques,” Stewart says.

Having come from a high school that does not have a marching program, Roy feels that he has accomplished many leaps and bounds with marching in drum corps. He says, “I’m in love with drum corps. The rush of playing in front of a crowd of people and hearing the applauses and screams from the enthusiastic crowd brings me great joy.

We are thrilled to have Roy and Music City Drum and Bugle Corps premiering their show, Coronation, at DRUMS on the OHIO on June 29!
