World Class Directors Vote For Open Roof At 2010 Quarterfinals
During a scheduled conference call last night, the voting members of Drum Corps International voted 11 to 9 in favor of opening the retractable roof at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis for the 2010 World Championship Quarterfinals on Thursday, August 12.
“Since the conclusion of the 2009 Championships, we’ve been working closely with stadium management and city representatives to address concerns over the sound in the stadium,” said Drum Corps International Executive Director Dan Acheson. “Fans may notice a number of additional measures that have been incorporated into the stadium setting for this year’s event to vastly improve the listening environment. Other improvements will be less visible while still enhancing the experience for performers and fans alike. If the weather cooperates this August, we will be able to gain additional insights from the open roof which we can take into consideration for the planning of future World Championship events.”
