Drum Corps in Theaters

Good evening students and Parents,

First of all, great work to all the students today on completing an accomplished day one of camp. We got a lot done but still have a long way to go. Please continue with your hard work.

Today during lunch we played some Drum Corps (DCI) shows on the projector for students to see. Many of the veteran members are familiar with this activity, but for those who aren't, here's some quick info. Drum Corps International is considered marching's major league. The corps' are comprised of young men and women, often ages 16-21 and in some cases younger. These individuals come together and perform shows similar to like we do without competitive marching band.

Finals for these groups are coming up in few weeks and the quarterfinals are broadcast live to theaters around the country. This is called "Big, Loud, and Live" and will showcase the to 25 corps including Carolina Crown, Bluecoats, Blue Devils, Phantom Regiment, Santa Clara Vanguard and many more. These also include two groups that we have Wall of Sound members marching in: Bluestars (Emily Warner) and Pioneer (George Bailey). We have arranged for a group discount for those who wish to attend. This is open to anyone including students, families, and friends.
