2016 Drum Corps Associates I&E and Mini Corps Competition

The 2016 DCA Championships weekend kicks off in style with the I&E and Mini Corps competition, taking place at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center. I&E starts at 6PM with mini corps taking place starting at 9PM. This is a great chance to meet up with friends and fellow drum corps fans, as well as cheer on your fellow performance in individual, ensemble, and mini corps action. This is also my best chance to be social and just be a fan for the performers as I don’t cover any of the events of this night so I’m looking forward to seeing everybody there!

If you will be there, be sure to check in on the Facebook page for the event.

DCA has posted the I&E schedules on their website.
