Biography

Star of Indiana was founded in 1984 to bring together leading professional music instructors, choreographers and arrangers to provide advanced musical education to some of the nation’s most talented student musicians. This progressive musical organization was created with a grant from Cook Group Incorporated, a leader in cardiovascular medical device manufacturing based in Bloomington, Indiana.

Star of Indiana originated as a 128-member unit which competed in the demanding arena of international drum and bugle corps competition. It was the first corps in history to finish in the Top Ten at Drum Corps International’s (DCI) World Championships in its first year of competition. Top Ten finishes in the World Championships followed annually until the group ended its competitive career after the 1993 season.

In 1991, Star earned the title World Champion from Drum Corps International, adding Top Three finishes in the world championships for the next two years. Overall, the group won more titles from 1990 to 1993 than any other corps at that time.

After a public performance in 1992, the group’s leadership decided it wanted to do more than entertain the public with a 10-minute drum corps routine. After completing the 1993 competitive season, Star left the field of drum and bugle corps competition and changed its focus to develop a new concept in brass and percussion performance.
