|History for Westchester Brassmen
The Westchester Brassmen is a senior parade corps based in Harrison, New York. The corps was founded September 7, 1984, when the American Legion Post 559 gave corps director Joe Mazzullo $10,000 to re-establish a corps in Harrison. The Carle-Anderson Drum and Bugle Corps had disbanded in 1969.|
Through the early 1990s, the Brassmen captured nearly every judged parade in which they competed, boasting memberships of up to 130 marchers. Although membership decreased after 1995, the corps still succeeded in capturing 12 trophies in 14 parades in 2002.
The corps has a strong family organization, with parents marching beside their children, and the quality of the sound has never been better, according to lead soprano Brett Duchon.
