Change of Venue to O’Fallon High School

(LEBANON, Ill., June 16, 2015) — Drum Corps International’s “DCI St. Louis” competition returns to the Metro-East this summer at a new location, O’Fallon (Ill.) Township High School. Hosted again by McKendree University, six corps have been announced for the performance on Tuesday, June 23 at 7:30 p.m. They are the Colts, from Dubuque, Iowa; the Crossmen, from San Antonio, Texas; Pioneer, from Milwaukee; Spirit of Atlanta, from Georgia; The Cadets, from Allentown, Pa.; and The Cavaliers, from Rosemont, Ill.

“DCI St. Louis” is a popular stop on “Marching Music’s Major League’s” Midwestern tour, which culminates at the world championships in Indianapolis in August. Due to renovation of McKendree’s Leemon Field this summer, the show will take place instead at O’Fallon Township High School, 600 S. Smiley, in O’Fallon, Ill. The box office opens at 3 p.m. Gates will open at 6 p.m.
