It is DCI Finals week and this year, I will be attending as Percussion Product Manager for Yamaha Corporation of America. I never had opportunity to march with a DCI corp, but I did have a lot of friends and students who have marched. This summer, I have had the opportunity to visit groups across the US and the level of these groups is phenomenal. Good luck to everyone performing this week and may the best corp win. Below are some articles to check out. Please keep me posted if there is an article I should share. Cheers!
