CORPS Photos

St. John's, formed in 1953, is a junior marching and maneuvering corps based in Brantford, Ontario.

The Brantford corps took part in Canadian National competition 36 times, starting in 1958. During that time they amassed 18 championships in five different competitive classes.

The corps has participated in DCI competition since 1974. Its highest finish was fourth in Division III in 1998. In 2003, the 34-member corps finished 28th in Division II/III with a show based upon the adventures of Harry Potter. The 2004 program based on the movie "Pirates of the Caribbean" put the corps in 12th place in Division III Prelims.

Traditionally an all-girl corps, St. John's became coed in 1985 during a major restructuring. Their uniforms are black and burgundy, with gold accents.
