DRUM CORPS INTERNATIONAL
7 p.m. War Memorial Stadium. $25.
In terms of staggering live productions, Drum Corps International will be hard to top. DCI bills itself as "marching music's major league," and after more than three decades of showcasing insanely complicated performances and ridiculously talented dancers and musicians, that seems like an indisputable claim.
If you need evidence of the awesomeness of these upper echelon band geeks, I suggest a quick YouTube search for "DCI highlights."
This show includes performances from The Cadets of Allentown, Pa.; The Cavaliers of Rosemont, Ill.; Bluecoats of Canton, Ohio; Blue Knights of Denver, Colo.; Glassmen of Toledo, Ohio; Academy of Tempe, Ariz.; Pacific Crest of Diamond Bar, Calif.; Crossmen of San Antonio; Cascades of Seattle; and Pioneer of Milwaukee, Wis.
I could find no reference to Bill Callahan anywhere! What's up with that?
Beautifully said, David Ramsey, sir.
Love that piece.
