The "INTERNATIONAL" part of DCI.


Recommended Posts

it used to be fun to go to shows up in Canada -

Will Canada customs relax a bit and start allowing drum corps to cross over and perform a show and then return to the US?

I came across this interesting article recently about the point of view of the activity up in Canada - they were saying that they needed to start their own Canada-only circuit and bring Canadian drum corps back - with no intention of participating in the US

I think this actually makes sense.  The biggest challenge is the cost of touring.   A regional circuit for new corps would be more feasible financially.

Canadian would be corps have a major problem of few to zero marching music programs, and not a lot of great music push for performers to do this activity. 
 

hence the big reason many folded. No customers to sell tuition to.

I just figured out where they get the "INTERNATIONAL" part of DCI.

It is in the British accents on the recorded narration during several 2022 corps shows.

The "International" part of DCI actually came from the Director of De La Salle Oaklands from Toronto, who were an original associate member.

I would like to see the Calgary Stampede Showband turn into the Calgary Stampede Drum Corps by going all brass. They were founded in 1971 and are fully funded by the Calgary Stampede. I found this article about their financial situation that some might find interesting.
