The world renowned Blue Devils of Concord, one of only a handful of special needs color guard groups in the nation, will be performing at the California Circuit Championships on March 29th at Independence High School in San Jose, California. Over fifty color guard units from various areas of California will be competing at this event but the Blue Devils Special Needs Color Guard of Concord are in a league of their own.
These youth refuse to let physical or developmental disabilities stand in the way of their passion for performance in the marching and color guard arts. At last year’s California Circuit Championship the group received the only standing ovation, from a crowd of 5,000, of the day.
When they perform they wow the audience and there is never a dry eye in the house, says Annette Odello, instructor of the group. "They give 110 percent at each performance and everyone who sees them leaves feeling good.
