Year-End Gifts to Pacific Crest

Are you making your list? Checkin’ it twice? If you’re thinking of a last-minute gift to Pacific Crest, we’ve made it convenient for you to make that gift online. While the Organization’s budget is $580,000, tuition makes up only $300,000. The remaining $280,000 comes from other sources, and we rely on donors to help make up a significant portion of that funding gap. We hope you will consider a holiday gift to Pacific Crest to help us close out the year "in the black." To make your gift, click here.

2011 Production Announced!

Pacific Crest is excited to announce our 2011 production: Push, Pull, Twist, Turn.

Program Coordinator Dale Leaman describes it as "a program that melds music with the movement of body and form into a four-movement suite."

The Design Team has spent the past six weeks discussing a variety of concepts, and the music guys initiated the process by listening to dozens of musical sources. "There’s been a ton of activity — phone calls, emails, and in-person meetings, and we’re all fired up about the show," said Executive Director Stuart Pompel.

The Walk to Indy — A Focus Group Film

Written by Antoinette Ochoa, Class of 2010

In the stands people put their hands together and applaud the corps at the completion of their best show yet.  On the field is a girl using everything she has left to hold herself up.  Once the bass drum hits, signaling the dismissal of the corps, her body goes out and she hits the ground.  The corps begins to exit the stadium as two staff members are left behind carrying her off the sideline.  The conditions in drum corps are less than ideal, yet something in the activity is appealing to high school and college students, bringing them back every summer to sacrifice a vacation for one thing: music performance.
