We are in the process of trying to coordinate a trip to watch a DCI (Drum Corps International) show. DCI is a group of competitive professional marching bands comprised of High School to College-aged students. The first opportunity is the Southwestern Championship live in San Antonio at the Alamodome on July 21st. The second is the World Championship Prelims, which will be shown in the Market Heights movie theater on August 9th. We would like to go to either one of these events but it depends on if there is demand for it. There is a poll posted here to see if members are interested in going. Please take time to click on the poll, so we can figure out which performance we will possibly go to.
Here is an introduction to what DCI is all about:
Who We Are
- Killeen High School Band
- Killeen, TX, United States
- "It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat." Theodore Roosevelt
