| |

James Campbell, a Provost’s Distinguished Service Professor and director of Percussion Studies in the University of Kentucky School of Music, is one of only four drum corps legends to be elected into the Drum Corps International Hall of Fame this year.

"It’s a great honor to be recognized by your peers and to share this award with so many friends and colleagues in the drum corps activity," said Campbell.

Professor Campbell is responsible for much of the modern look and sound of today’s drum corps percussion ensembles. With a legendary background as an instructor and arranger for the Guardsmen, of Schaumburg, Ill., and the Rosemont Cavaliers Drum and Bugle Corps, of Rosemont, Ill., from the 70s through the 90s, Campbell’s drum corps credits include winning three High Percussion Awards and two World Championships during his tenure with the two corps.
