Founded in 2003 as the Saints Drumline Inc, Columbus Saints Performing Arts Inc. of Columbus, OH is a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering music education and performance excellence in the marching arts within Central Ohio. The Saints have been providing the youth of central Ohio opportunities in the marching arts for over 10 years. Recently, the program has expanded to included a full line of bugles, and concert percussion combining with the Saints Drumline and Angels Drill Team to create the Columbus Saints Drum & Bugle Corps.

With the expansion of our program we now offer music education to the community, while supporting area schools with affordable educational and competitive performance opportunities for our members. “We want to give local performers the opportunity to perform on the marching field. Expanding our program to include brass horn players will open more performance opportunities and enhance the experience of students we already have participating in the Saints Drumline and Angels Drill Teams.” said Marshall Cheatham, the founder and Executive Director of the Columbus Saints organization. By providing activities for school age student while provide music mentors with performers from OSU and other local colleges, we provide incentive for kids to learn, aspire to do well in school, and excel in life.


The goals of the Columbus Saints organization are to grow participants into exceptional performers on the field, in school, and in life, and to provide a unique experience for performers, volunteers, supporters and fans.
