Frequently Asked Questions
What is Zephyrus Arts Institute?
Zephyrus is a Tulsa-area youth arts organization specializing in performing arts. We are currently developing programs for drum corps, marching band, concert band, dance, color guard, and more! See our "about us" page.
Is Zephyrus starting a drum corps?
Yes. We are working directly with SoundSport (a program of Drum Corps International) to grow Oklahoma's own competitive drum corps. To be the first to know more, click HERE.
Will Zephyrus Drum Corps do a full tour in 2020?
No. As we start small and build a strong foundation, the drum corps experience will at first be a fraction of both the cost and normal time commitment of a competitive drum corps in DCI.
What is Zephyrus Marching Academy (ZMA)?
It's a camp for band students that trains members of all skill levels how to maximize their talent. Over the course of the camp, they work through physical and artistic training. As a component of the camp, students perform as members of the Zephyrus Drum & Bugle Corps.
Is there a difference between ZMA and Zephyrus Drum & Bugle Corps?
Not in 2020, when the drum corps program is promoted to open class, Zephyrus Marching Academy will be offered as a separate, less intense and more affordable summer program for younger students. in 2020, members of Zephyrus Drum and Bugle Corps will also experience the training of Zephyrus Marching Academy.
*Who can attend ZMA?
Performers (Brass, Percussion, color guard) that have at least one season of marching band experience. Age 15-22.

Yes. We are holding audition clinics beginning in January 2020. Check back soon for official dates!
