In The News: Brass Spectacular Returns To Pitt State

| |

Tickets for the 2008 Brass Spectacular drum and bugle corps show at Pittsburg State University go on sale Thursday, May 1. The show, which features seven of the nation’s top drum and bugle corps, will be at 8 p.m. Wednesday, July 23, in Carnie Smith Stadium.

The Pittsburg show is part of the Drum Corps International (DCI) Summer Music Games tour that concludes with the world championships in Indianapolis, Ind. The corps are made up of musicians between the ages of 14 and 22 from the United States, Canada and around the world. The corps perform precision marching and formations while playing both original and well-known compositions.

"A drum corps show is the ultimate expression of power and pageantry," said Doug Whitten, director of athletics bands at Pittsburg State University. "Some people have described drum corps performances as a cross between a Las Vegas show and a symphony orchestra."
