Drum Corps International in town Sunday!

This coming Sunday, July 6, the world renown Phantom Regiment Drum and Bugle Corps will be on the campus of Downers Grove North High School, practicing for a competition that will be held in Lisle, IL that evening. DGN & DGS student musicians - as well as family members and friends - are invited to come to the DGN campus and observe the ensemble as they rehearse.  If you have never seen a DCI corps "in action," you will never forget the power of the sound and the visual precision of the marching.

The corps rehearsal schedule for Sunday has not yet been released, but a typical day will include small group work in the morning (break out rehearsals for the brass, percussion and guard), and then full-corps work after a lunch break on the stadium field.

Because Phantom's coach buses and equipment trucks will be using the west parking lot, those who wish to observe should park in the Main Street lot, cross at the light, and then proceed on foot around the exterior of the Field House toward the stadium.

The Sunday evening DCI show, which is sponsored by The Cavalier's Drum & Bugle Corps, and held at Benedictine University in Lisle, IL, will be a showcase of the best marching arts ensembles in the world.  If you have the time to attend on Sunday night, you are strongly encouraged to buy tickets, and enjoy an amazing night of music and marching.  Details about the show in Lisle, and information about tickets may be found by clicking here.  Tickets may be purchased in advance online, or at the gate.
