Compressed summer tour DCI announcement

Recommended Posts

Can DCI pull off a compressed summer tour? I guess the next couple of weeks will tell the story. Housing might be the biggest obstacle.

A reduced number of performances of watered-down shows with extremely reduced rehearsal time is worse than no season at all. If there can't be a full, normal tour this year, then cancel the season and let the ageouts come back next year. Don't insult them by forcing this sort of substandard production to be all they get.

what announcement?  if you're asking if they'll do one, you're missing a question mark in your thread title.

Wait, you're not in favor of Drum Corps Lite or Light  ?   :-)

SHM, Where is the +/- button when you need it. This is definitely a minus

It's mentioned in this update posted on DCI.org today.

"With hope for a safe and vastly improved environment in the coming weeks, current efforts include developing a revised and compressed schedule for the 2020 DCI Summer Tour."

Completely agree. 

"With the hope for a safe and vastly improved environment in the coming weeks..." -- that just ain't gonna happen folks.   This pandemic is just getting started.

This seems more about softening the blow when they have to REALLY pull the plug.

Housing has to be the biggest piece of this puzzle.

Also, individual state governments can shut down “gatherings over x” at any time at any venue.
