CORPS Photos

Beatrix, a marching and maneuvering corps from Hilversum, Holland, has been around in some form or other since 1946. It was named for Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands at the end of World War II. At first a pipe and drum corps, the group became definitively a drum corps in 1983.

The corps has been Netherlands national champions at least four times, and has won German Open and All-Europe titles as well. In 2003 the corps won the first KNFM Championships, essentially the championship of Holland, by a crushing 20 points.

The corps holds concerts annually in honor of Queen's Day, the birthday of Queen Beatrix.

Beatrix has toured the United States six times, the first time in 1975 and most recently in 2004, participating in the Summer Music Games in Denver. They finished tenth that year in Division II Prelims, with a score of 81.625.
