Welcome to the debut of two brand new virtual events!

For the first time anywhere, “The 2016 SoundSport Virtual Preview” and “The 2016 SoundSport Virtual World Championships” make it possible for teams around the world to participate in SoundSport performances through online video submissions!


Participating teams will receive invaluable input and feedback from nationally­-recognized performing arts education professionals along with insightful commentary designed to help maximize performance strengths. SoundSport Virtual events help groups to refine their performances, creating a high­-achieving, highly-­entertaining experience for participants and fans alike! Performing groups will be adjudicated on Music Performance, Visual Performance and Overall Impression while participating in one of six competitive classes. Each ensemble will receive an official Gold, Silver or Bronze rating based on their video performance or they can participate in Festival Class to receive feedback while performing in exhibition.

The SoundSport Virtual Preview will provide U.S. SoundSport teams with the opportunity for critique on their summer performance before heading to live competitions in the coming weeks. International teams can also take advantage of the opportunity to gain feedback on their shows prior to entry in The 2016 SoundSport Virtual World Championships!

  • Cost: $175USD per ensemble per e-Adjudicated performance ($100 discount for current 2016 SoundSport Member Teams)
  • Registration dates: June 1 through June 15, 2016
  • Results announced: Wednesday, June 22, 2016

The 2016 SoundSport Virtual World Championships, held in conjunction with the DCI World Championships in August, offers teams worldwide the ability to participate in DCI Finals Week, even if they are unable to travel to Indianapolis this summer.

Here’s how it works:

Participants will simply record a single-­camera video of their SoundSport performance, and will upload the performance based on instructions which will be sent to your ensemble’s official contact person.

The recording may be captured at a public performance or in the privacy of a closed rehearsal. Whatever works best for you!

You will be notified when the registration opens for these events and supplied with a link to submit your official SoundSport Virtual competition video.
