Music City Legend Will Not Compete In 2010
Music City Legend, Nashville’s first and only all-age drum corps, will not compete in either the Drum Corps Associates or Drum Corps International circuits this summer, according to MCL Executive Director Scott Rhodes.
Legend’s Board of Directors decided that, based upon the corps’ current financial and organizational situation, it was best for the corps to take a year off and use the time to recruit, fundraise, and establish a more cohesive business plan before re-taking the field in 2011. A key part of Music City Legend’s new business plan will be a concerted effort to strengthen its ties to the Mid-South performing arts community. However, Rhodes stresses that one thing that will not change for next year is the corps’ commitment to bringing a fun and entertaining program to the field for the audience and the corps’ members.
The corps will maintain public visibility in 2010 through parade appearances and concerts. Legend will also host Tennessee’s only all-age drum corps competition, Music City Metal IV, on
Saturday, August 7, at Antioch High School, 1900 Hobson Road, in Antioch, Tennessee. Corps from Georgia, Florida, and Virginia are expected to attend. Ticket information will be available soon on the corps’ website and telephone information line (615.691.1918).
Music City Legend encourages all who wish to support the corps through this process and/or be a part of Legend in 2011 to join them now. More information can be found at http://www.musiccitylegend.org or by e-mail to recruiting [at] musiccitylegend [dot] org.
