Frank Lozar marched in competition every year from 1947, when he first played a horn with American Legion Post 248 drum and bugle corps in Ely, Minnesota, until 2005. He moved from Ely to perform with Minnesota Brass and Hamm’s Indian, returning to the Brass in 1962. He served as corps director of Minnesota Brass from 1963 to 1969. Since 1980, he has performed with both Minnesota Brass and Zuhrah Shrine. He has been on the board of directors of both organizations, and has been fundraising co-ordinator for several midwestern drum and bugle corps at various times. He is a winner of the Minnesota Brass’ highest award, the Brassy, considered the Hall of Fame and lifetime achievement award. He was part of the group which was the first to initiate female membership in drum corps activity. At age 70, he was recognized as the oldest competitor on the field at the championship tournaments of both Drum Corps Midwest (DCM) and Drum Corps Associates (DCA) in 1998. He was still marching in competition in 2005, when he received the World Drum Corps Hall of Fame Lifetime Achievement Award.
