Blue Stars “On Corps!” Competition Returns In 2017
The Blue Stars Drum & Bugle Corps is pleased to announce the return of their annual “On Corps!” competition for aspiring arrangers and composers! We invite individuals with an interest in arranging and composing music to submit their works to be considered for performance by the 2017 Blue Stars. The winning arrangement/composition will be performed as part of the corps` encore repertoire for the season.
All participants will receive feedback on their submission from members of the Blue Stars design and instructional team. Johnathan Segovia, the winner of the 2016 “On Corps” contest, states:
“The On Corps competition is extremely valuable to young or emerging composers. The critique alone makes it worth entering. It is a surreal experience to see something I wrote down on paper to be played by DCI’s best groups. It is something I will treasure for the rest of my life.”
