The Cadets have the ideal camp wrap up for you…


And that’s just 35-seconds of the introduction to the 2010 program! The piece – Procession of Nobles - is followed by nearly nine-minutes of music that has been learned by the corps as they continue putting together another one-of-a-kind summer field show.

The corps met in Woodstown, N.J., last weekend for their fourth rehearsal camp of the season and, as always, it was jam-packed with energy, excitement, music, marching, and plenty of Cadets-style tradition. Revisions to Children’s Dance from Merry Mount and School for Scandal were taught as were several encore and parade tunes. And members were in for a treat when they were given a preview of the 2010 uniform courtesy of the corps’ new uniform partner, DeMoulin Brothers and Company.

The corps members were thrilled to get a look at the new uniform, said Justin Heimbecker, Assistant Director of the Cadets. DeMoulin representatives Steven Trull and Vaughan Sawdon attended the camp, showing the corps the newest version of Maroon and Gold, and assisting a team of volunteer seamstresses in fitting returning and new Cadets. 

“We can’t thank DeMoulin enough for being there to assist our dedicated volunteers in obtaining measurements for each Cadet. As we know, the Cadet uniform has to hang well, and have the perfect fit on every member,” said Heimbecker.

Only two camps remain on The Cadets’ schedule before Move In and Spring Training begin on May 17th. The corps gathers again March 26-28th and on April 30th-May 2nd at Woodstown High School in Woodstown, N.J. The corps roster is, for the most part set, said Heimbecker, but select spots for trumpets and baritone players remain open for auditions.

Since January, the pace has picked up, as show music begins to take shape and the players become more comfortable with the rehearsal regimen. 

“Over the past three camp weekends, the corps has shown tremendous progress, both within and outside of rehearsal,” Heimbecker said. “It’s easy to see that the excitement is building as the summer approaches, whether it’s through musical preparation, physical training, uniform fittings, or learning the ideals and philosophies becoming of a Cadet; it’s an exciting time of year for everyone!”

Trumpet and baritone players interested in auditioning for The Cadets should contact Heimbecker at, or by telephone at (610) 821-0345, Ext. 112.
