Since 1957, The Blue Devils and then later, BD Performing Arts (BDPA), has been committed to providing visionary leadership in the drum corps activity and youth-oriented performing arts; a legacy spanning 66 years.
The new Legacy57 monthly giving campaign provides an opportunity for YOU to invest in the future of BDPA. Featuring two giving levels and unique patron benefits, this program is designed to directly support participant-focused BDPA program efforts such as our selection for 2023: HEALTH AND WELLNESS.
In 2015, BDPA became one of the first organizations in DCI to gather a professionally trained health and wellness team to provide on-site care to members. During the 2022 season, the team provided the following services to our members:
Our Health and Wellness team coordinated COVID protocols to ensure that no performances were canceled or modified due to COVID-19.
Health and Wellness team members provided 180 hours facilitating 146 medical or orthopedic visits.
Blue Devils A and B members received over 3500 hours of support from the Health and Wellness Team.
6 of the 9 team members are Blue Devils Alumni.
As a result of these H&W efforts, every member of the 2022 Blue Devils performed at DCI Finals this year.
It is important to recognize that these vital services require ongoing and increasing support to have an impact. Legacy57, a new BDPA monthly recurring giving campaign, is specifically focused in 2023 toward support of the Health and Wellness program. We invite you to join Legacy57 as a founding member.

$19.57 per month. Donors at this level will receive a Property of Legacy57 t-shirt and all patron benefits at the Fanfare Silver level.
