  1. Greetings! For about six months now I have hosted Sketchbook Podcast which focuses on creativity, preparation, & effort with artists, creators, & educators. Part 1 of the interview with Chris Komnick, executive director of the Madison Scouts, releases at midnight on April 13th. I fully realize that to many, Komnick and/or the Scouts tend to incite some polarizing posts and threads. But this episode is drum corps related and so I thought I would make sure to publicize here. Ep. 28, Part 1: Chris Komnick (Executive Director, Madison Scouts D&BC) So that y

  3. Although this was written to the citizens of Alabama, it is relevant to every one in the country. Even more so to some in other states. Please read. https://www.al.com/opinion/2020/03/renowned-aids-expert-alabama-not-prepared-for-major-storm-of-covid-19.html
  4. Recent corps announcements introduced Drum Majors for the 2020 season. Many are pursuing music educations which sparked my curiosity about what a drum corps experience would equate to in a career for women. Like many, my experience in drum corps was mostly male with a few female players, but as drum corps has evolved, it seems like there has been an increase in female players. I've recently discovered Rachel Portman who is a cinematic composer and the following clips of some very talented female trumpet players on youtube. I would love to hear comments especially from the
  5. Hello! Over the past half year I have been trying to compile a list of all the percussion caption heads throughout DCI, for what years they taught, and their corps they were with. Corps write "caption head" titles in different ways and these titles have meant different things throughout DCI history. For the purposes of this project, by percussion "caption head" I mean the head of the percussion section (think top honcho). EX. Colin McNutt: Boston Crusaders: 2017 - 2020 I've posted multiple forums like these over the internet, one here, and I want to thank everyone who has contribut

  7. Some disturbing and questionable news has arisen once again in the DCI community. Before you continue reading, please read the following post put out by the now defunct drum corps Encorps. Encorps December 13 at 11:21 AM · FINAL STATEMENT AND DETAILS REGARDING ENCORPS As you know, the Board of Directors of Jersey Arts and Music has decided not to continue with Encorps DCI Open Class Drum Corps as a program offering. Instead of explaining all of this everytime someone ask
  8. I don't know what happened to my 1981 Drum Corps International Legacy Collection DVD as I HAD the whole set, but it has gone missing and I need to replace it. If you're willing to sell, reach out to me and we'll talk.
  9. 2021 Proposed Rule Change. TITLE OF PROPOSED CHANGE: Uniform Uniformity DESCRIPTION: All competitive drum corps will use the same uniform during competition. Each corps will have their own uniforms, but they will be of the same design. The same style and construction, color and fabric. This includes hats, shako’s or any type of head cover. The same style shoes and socks. The only style and construction differential would be for different sections of the drum corps. Color guard, Percussion and Brass may need special accommodations. These accommodations will only be acceptable, i
  10. Hello! I am putting together a comprehensive list of percussion caption heads throughout DCI's history and have been scourging the internet for information and emailing the corps (some I haven't emailed yet). I still need a lot of information and was hoping to find some help here. Below are the lists of years that I haven't been able to find caption heads for or information that I haven't been able to verify. I have also included a link to the google sheets file that has all of the information that I have found so far. Click here for the google sheets file. ******* I've been aw
  11. DCI World Class Rankings (Caption Compilation) Posted by DCI after 7/29 Going into Allentown I wanted to see how the corps are Ranked by caption so I put this list together to share. The Caption Scores are the latest listed performance scores up to 7/29 from Soaring Sounds, NightBEAT, Drums Across the Tri-State, and DCI Southeastern contests. (Please Note! - I prepared as "TEXT" document so it could be copied if you desire. The columns are adjusted in the post so the columns kind of line up to view but if copy the text to another document, the fields will not be in line. -- Sor
  12. This post may sound a bit "Corny" but I would like to acknowledge cfirwin3 as "Teacher of the Weekend" for the week ending 7-28-19. He has provided us with some very detailed and informative posts explaining a number of points about music and the drum corps activity. Additionally, he has uploaded a series of videos on youtube comparing older drum corps shows to newer show designs. Well Done and Thank You
  13. Previously, I made a private request to a member of this forum for this info but my request was either ignored or it was lost. I tend to believe the latter. Searching for information on DCI's judging sheets led me back to an old post here in the Drum Corps Planet forums. The original post: Judging system/score sheets By JustinDMoore, June 17, 2014 in DCI World Class Corps Discussions JustinDMoore was looking for info detailing How the final score is calculated on the Recap sheets. Thanks to jjeffeory It's Just "Jeff", jjeffeory Posted on June 20, 2014 the followin
  14. Hello! I'm thinking about auditioning for BD synth, and had a couple of questions. 1. About how many people usually audition for synth? 2. Do you have to know MainStage? 3. Would a piece like Chopin's Prelude in B minor (op. 28 no. 6) be okay? (https://musescore.com/classicman/scores/68550) If not, what kind of piece would be suitable to audition with? I assume that it shouldn't last more than 2 minutes, but I could be wrong. 4. What is the audition process like? 5. When did you hear back from BD? Thank you for all your help!
  15. Has anyone noticed that The US Marine Drum Corps is missing from this season? Live streams produced by DCI and Flo Marching feature The ARMY band as a career. I thought the USMC was a corporate sponsor for DCI but have heard nothing about them to date. Did I miss something?
  16. We watched DCI West via FloMarching last night. (and, boy, do they have a lot of kinks to work out) I have to remind myself that is the FIRST show for most of these corps, but saying that.... The Academy - They are a Top 12 corps. How The Mandarin beat them....? What was the corps calling itself "The Troopers?" That wasn't the Troopers. I don't know what it was. Same goes for The Cavaliers. But all hail Blue Devil C!!! I'm not a BD fan, but I was shocked that SCV beat them. Excited to see DCI Crossroads tonight.

  18. I thought I start a thread of inks to live feeds of the hornline, drumline, front ensemble, and guard warm ups. To keep things kosher, let's stay away from posting live show feeds. Let's keep it to live video from the parking lot.

  20. I'm starting a new thread for tributes to the founders of DCI. Don Warren of the Cavaliers Bill Howard of the Madison Scouts Dave Kampschroer of the Blue Stars Gail Royer of the Santa Clara Vanguard Jim Jones of the Troopers In 1971, they formed the Combine West that became Drum Corps International the following year.
