Serving as a designer, instructor, consultant and adjudicator, Todd Clevenger has been involved in the pageantry arts for more than thirty years. DCI, WGI, BOA and circuits across the country have seen finalist performances from groups with which Todd has worked. Well-versed in all facets of the activity, Todd is currently active in marching band, drum corps, winter guard, indoor percussion, and indoor winds.
A long list of respected programs have benefitted from the wealth of knowledge and student-centered approach that Todd brings to his teaching. Northmont High School in Ohio, Mililani H.S. (Hawaii), Las Vegas H.S. (Nevada), and Greenwood, Ben Davis, and Center Grove High Schools in Indiana are some of the programs Todd has enjoyed working with. For five years beginning in 2004, Todd was thrilled to be on the visual staff of the Glassmen Drum and Bugle Corps from Toledo, Ohio. In 2013 and 2014, Todd served as the visual caption head for the Blue Knights Drum and Bugle Corps from Denver, Colorado. Following this, in 2017 and 2018, he was the visual caption head for the Troopers Drum and Bugle Corps of Casper, Wyoming. While continuing to work with high school groups like Mililani, Todd is currently serving as the program coordinator for the Louisiana Stars Drum and Bugle Corps.
Todd also served three years as the visual caption head for Indianapolis Independent (I2) Percussion Ensemble from Indianapolis, Indiana, a program which was an Independent World Class finalist two of those three years. In addition to teaching indoor percussion groups each winter, Todd is an active adjudicator and announcer, working for circuits nationally. His voice may be recognizable as WGI Percussion World Championships frequently find him behind the microphone serving as one of the voices of the Sport of the Arts. He also is an active host and announcer for Challenge Entertainment.
