Dominating the the west coast since 1998, the RCC Winter Drumline had an unprecedented and heart-warming gold-medal performance at their WGI World Championships debut in 2002 with their historic show, "The Sound of Silence." Since then, the drumline has gone on to win three more World Championships (2005, 2007, 2012), and has finished 1st or 2nd in 10 out of their 12 trips to Dayton, never finishing lower than 4th.

RCC's drumline has also been featured in music videos with Shannon Brown and JC Chasez of 'NSync, and have also been recently featured in a TV commercial for Five Star school products. Among the highlights of last year were appearances on the hit HBO TV show "Big Love," as well as NBC-TV's Emmy-winning comedy hit "The Office!" and on "Parks and Recreation!"

Aside from the competitions and performances, the RCC winter drumline hosts "Summer Drum Days," featuring clinicians by the activity's top percussion instructors.
