SMA Drum Line

The Sarasota Military Academy Drum Line was first established in 2007. Through the years, this dynamic performing ensemble has had the privilege to perform for numerous community and military-related events. These events have included performances at the Sarasota National Cemetery, the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, Ed Smith Stadium, The Ringling Museum and the IMG Academy.

Having developed into a staple performance ensemble at the Sarasota Military Academy High School, the drum line concept has expanded to the Sarasota Military Academy Prep School, which currently includes a drum line performance ensemble in its elective course offerings.
