History[edit]

Founded in 2006, Fusion Core is quickly becoming one of the fastest growing group in Drum Corps Associates. In its relatively short history, Fusion Core has won many accolades already.

Their first competitive year was in 2007 with their show "The Journey Begins". Part of the Class A division, Fusion Core finished in 4th place, just on the outside of making finals for Class A. In 2008, its second competitive year, Fusion Core won second place in the Class A division of DCA with their show "Momentum", winning them numerous caption awards. In 2009, their show "Progress" saw Fusion Core finishing in 5th place, just outside finals again (Class A changed the number of finalists from 3 to 4 in 2008.) Fusion Core won their first, and only, Class A title in 2010 with their show "Changing Perceptions." In 2011, the corps finished in second place for the second time with their show "AfriCORE: Untamed".

In 2012, Fusion Core changed from Class A, who had a limit of 65 members, to Open Class, which allowed for more membership in the corps. Their first show in Open Class, "The Hit", landed Fusion Core in ninth place out of ten corps in Open Class. Fusion Core continued their competition into 2013 with their show "Til We Meet Again", where the corps finished in seventh place.

In 2014, Fusion Core will be competing again in DCA Open Class division with their production "Dreamscapes".
