About Our Summer Tour
Each May hundreds of the best young performers travel from around the world to Marion, IN for the start of a 12,000 mile journey.
Our journey includes serving these young musicians and color guard performers 800 meals every single day, and driving a fleet of 10 vehicles to rehearsal and performance stops all around the continental United States. It takes an army of volunteers, medical professional, tour directors, professional drivers, and a dedicated educational staff to make a Bluecoats summer a life-changing experience.
Bloo19 Summer Tour Opportunities
Work on the Bluecoats Food Truck at Spring Training (and sleep in a dorm w/ no travel!) The corps stays in Marion, IN for about 5 weeks each summer.
Work on the Bluecoats Food Truck while we're on the road! You can travel with us on a sleeper coach w/ a bed or just visit for the day while we're near you!
