Seven of the country’s top drum corps will roll into Edmond on July 15 to strike sticks and trade licks at the University of Central Oklahoma, school officials announced last week.
The DCI Summer Music Games Tour performance at UCO’s Wantland Stadium is the first-ever metro stop for Drum Corps International, an organization of competitive drum and bugle bands comprised of high school and college-age musicians.
THEATRICAL MUSIC EVENTS
Acclaimed corps The Santa Clara Vanguard and the Madison Scouts will perform alongside highly regarded groups from Seattle, Iowa, Arizona and Wyoming. Drum corps shows are theatrical music events that incorporate high-intensity drumming, marching musicians and choreographed field movements.
General admission tickets are $15 in advance, while reserved seats are $20. Tickets at the gate are $18 and $23, respectively. Ticket sales will benefit UCO band scholarships. For more information, call 974-3428. “Joe Wertz
