Lake Erie Fanfare 2015

The Erie Thunderbirds have completed their 2015 with a successful trip to Rochester, NY to compete in DCA Championships for the first time in 30 over years. The Thunderbirds placed 6th in Class A with a score of 70.05 in their first season. Our very own Trisha Hardner also had a very impressive performance to take home 1st place on her marimba solo during the Individual Competition.Our Corps Director, Sean Bartlett, was voted Class A 2015 Director of the Year by the other directors of DCA.  The Thunderbirds traveled as far as Racine, WI and Waterloo, Ontario in Canada in 2015.

The corps has completed the dream of many to bring a competitive drum corps back to the Erie area, and the corps had membership from 7 High Schools in the Erie area as well as several members from Ohio - as far as Columbus. The Thunderbirds would like to thank everyone for the overwhelming support, and would personally like to thank every VIP Club Sponsor who helped make this season a success.
