Showcase in the Square will offer guests the ultimate Father’s Day experience. In addition to featured performances by the Crossmen, the only Drum Corps International World Class Drum Corps in the state of Texas, spectators will also hear performances by two other musical groups: Genesis Drum and Bugle Corps and the Metro Praise Youth Orchestra. For the first time this year, Holy Frijole Bistro food truck will be serving Tex-Mex favorites at the event. Guests are encouraged to bring blankets and chairs for comfortable viewing during the concert, which is expected to attract 2,500-3,000 people in attendance this year.

The housing site for the Crossmen and Genesis will be at Carroll High School this year and we cannot thank Dr. David Faltys and Carroll ISD enough for the continuing support for our showcase event,” stated John Schock, co-chair of the event.

Dedication to shaping the lives of young musicians through music education, the San Antonio-based Crossmen are comprised of 150 members, ages 16-21 who excel in brass, percussion or color guard, as well as 50 professional music educators. Each summer, the Crossmen perform and compete throughout the nation. After kicking off this year’s tour in Southlake, the Crossmen’s tour will span nearly half of the country, reaching as far north as Massachusetts and as far south as Florida, offering the group’s young members the opportunity to share their passion for music with countless fans.

Showcase in the Square would not be possible without the support of several sponsors, including Allstate Insurance-Steve Ward Agency, ECHO Transportation, Hilton Southlake Town Square, Knockouts, Pet Butler, Pet Love, Waddell & Reed, and Roxann Taylor Engel & Volkers.Crossmen at Rustin Pavilion
