I’ve received my writing assignments, begun rehearsing my music, and have scoured the 2018 drum corps schedule. The results are listed below.

If you will be at any of these shows, please let me know!

Drum Corps Shows I Will Be At – 2012 Edition UPDATED 5/14/12

Now that WGI is over, it is time to look forward to the upcoming drum corps season. I’ve gone through the calendar and here are the shows I plan to attend, either as a spectator or as a reviewer, in 2012:

Saturday, June 16th – Innovations In Brass (DCI Akron, Ohio)
Wednesday, July 11th – Glassmen All-Star Review (DCI Bowling Green, Ohio)
Tuesday, July 31st – Emerald City Music Games (DCI Dublin, Ohio)
Monday, August 6th – Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival Drum Corps Competition (DCI Massillon, Ohio)
Thursday, August 9th – Big, Loud, & Live 9 Drum Corps International World Classs Championships Preliminaries Cinecast (DCI TBD)
Saturday, August 11th – Drum Corps International World Class Championships Finals Competition (DCI Indianapolis, IN)
Friday, August 31st – Drum Corps Associates Mini-Corps Championships (DCA Annapolis, MD)
Saturday, September 1st – Drum Corps Associates World Championships Preliminaries Competition (DCA Annapolis, MD)
Sunday, September 2nd – Drum Corps Associates Alumni Spectacular (DCA Annapolis, MD)
Sunday, September 2nd – Drum Corps Associates World Championships Finals Competition (DCA Annapolis, MD)

I may attend the Tour Premiere cinema event on June 18th. Since I’ll have seen the shows live two days earlier, I’d be going more because of the social aspect. I may also attend the Music Under The Stars DCA show in Hornell, NY, in July 28th. That will depend more on whether DCW needs somebody to cover that show. I’ll update this post once I have word on that show.

If you plan on being at any of these shows, let me know in the comments below. I would love to meet fellow drum corps fans.

My 2010 DCA Schedule

Here’s my schedule for the 2010 DCA World Championships in Rochester, New York.


Unfortunately, I have a full day of work (remind me to get the Friday of DCA weekend off next year), so I won’t leave the Cleveland area until after 5PM. I plan on arriving at my hotel around 10:45PM, so I will not be attending I&E or Mini-Corps. This is a bummer. Continue reading My 2010 DCA Schedule
