As part of our partnership with the City of Oceanside, we’ve created the Oceanside Recycled Drum Corp!

Inspired by Landfill Harmonic’s Recycled Orchestra, we’re combining Environmental Awareness and Arts Education. Students involved in the Oceanside Recycled Drum Corp use recycled and repurposed materials to create percussion instruments and will have the opportunity to perform as a large group at the North County Earth Festival on Sunday, April 27th in Downtown Oceanside.

There are currently two age groups that we’re working with, Elementary/Middle School and High School. Read below for information on how your child can participate.
