Avant Garde, was a junior drum corps based in Saratoga County, New York. It was the result of a merger of the Bethesda Emerald Knights and the Speigleaires in 1975.


In its first year of competition (1975), the Corps placed 25th at DCI Nationals. Avant Garde’s best placement at DCI’s was in 1984. The Corps' last appearance at DCI’s was in 1985.



In 1983, two members of Avant Garde, Cynthia Brown and Charles Klangos, were married on the practice field in Miami before the DCI Championships. They had considered waiting until they returned home to New York, until discovering that Florida has no waiting period to get married. Corps director Jeff Perkins gave the bride away.
