The Forté Drum and Bugle Corps was an Open Class DCI drum and bugle corps based in Grand Prairie, TX. Forté was formed under the Overture Youth Advocacy Through the Arts umbrella and marched its first season in 2010. The corps was based on its predecessor, Memphis Sound.[2]

Forté was recently noted in the Drum Corps International's frequent podcast, FieldPass, for discussion of its debut season.[3]

On July 25, 2012, Forte announced that it was ending its 2012 tour.[4] On August 9, 2012, Forte announced it was permanently ceasing operations.
