More info about the DCI trip

More info about the DCI trip, especially for the parents of new members of the 2015 Marching Band:  DCI is short for Drum Corps International.  Drum Corps are essentially "professional" or "All Star" marching bands.  There are dozens of Drum Corps around the country and anyone between the ages of 13-21 can audition for any of the Drum Corps.  These students then spend the entire summer practicing and performing at competitions, culminating in the World Championships at Lucas Oil Stadium (where the Indianapolis Colts play).  We will be traveling to Murfreessboro on the afternoon of the last day of Band Camp to watch 8 of the top Drum Corps compete.  This is a completely optional trip, but one I highly recommend.  We took a group last year and had a great time.  For more info about Drum Corps, go to, or simply search for Drum Corps on Youtube.
