Dan English Trophy Winners

Connecticut rudimental snare drummers are among the finest practitioners of the "art of drumming" in the world and one of the reasons, in addition to a great deal of talent and some very fine instructions like the late J. Burns Moore and Earl Sturtz, may have been their individual question for one of the most coveted prizes in all of drum corps - the Dan English trophy, awarded by Lancraft Fife & Drum Corps for individual snare drumming in the senior class as the Connecticut State Convention - the annual state championship standstill drum corps contest - held in August of every year for more than 100 years.
