Drum Corps International (DCI) - St. Louis

dci July 14, 2014

Hosted by McKendree University at Leemon Field 


Formed in 1972, Drum Corps International (DCI) is the non-profit governing body for junior drum and bugle corps in the U.S.A. and Canada. Junior drum and bugle corps are musical marching units consisting of brass, percussion, and color guard performers 21 years of age and younger. Competitive corps prepare a new show each year, approximately 8–12 minutes in length, and refine it throughout the summer tour. For six of the world class performing corps, DCI St. Louis is part of that tour.

Each competitive event operates similarly to a high school marching band competition with shows performed on football fields and judged in various musical and visual categories, or "captions". Competitive junior corps spend roughly 8–10 weeks on tour, practicing and performing full-time as they work towards the weeklong culminating event of DCI World Championships in August.

“One of the most popular Midwestern stops on the annual Drum Corps International Tour schedule, DCI St. Louis returns on Monday, July 14. McKendree University’s Leemon Field will once again play host to this event in Lebanon, Ill., located just east of St. Louis." – www.dci.org
