The Cavaliers would like to extend a heartfelt invitation to the Bourbonnais, Kankakee, and surrounding communities to join us at Olivet Nazarene University’s Ward Field this Saturday, June 3, at 8pm for a special Fan Appreciation Night. 

Based out of Rosemont, Ill., The Cavaliers have been housed on ONU's beautiful campus to prepare for the upcoming 2017 Drum Corps International (DCI) summer tour. Our operation of 200 students, management, instructors, and volunteers have enjoyed life at Olivet Nazarene, and now we want to show the community what we’ve been up to during our 17-day visit!

Starting at 8:00pm, the corps will begin full ensemble rehearsal to highlight the details of putting together a large-scale production with 150 young brass, color guard, and percussion performers. At 9:30pm, The Cavaliers will perform approximately 7 minutes of the 2017 field production titled, Men Are From Mars.

The event is free and open to the public. Donations are encouraged at the door and merchandise will be available for purchase. Weather permitting.


The Cavaliers respectfully ask that attendees refrain from capturing photos, audio, and video to best protect the organization regarding copyright compliance during the event.

Thank you to Olivet Nazarene University’s incredible staff for the warm hospitality – We hope to demonstrate our appreciation this Saturday at Ward Field!
