DCI Performer’s Showcase to include SoundSport Participants

This August, participants in the SoundSport program are once again invited to participate in the 2015 DCI Performer’s Showcase.

Individuals and ensembles will once again have their day in the spotlight during the week of the Drum Corps International World Championships, when the DCI Performers Showcase presented by System Blue highlights the start of Championship Week action in Indianapolis.

Continuing the tradition of the Individual & Ensemble Competition of previous years, the DCI Performers Showcase will take place in the heart of downtown Indy on Wednesday, Aug. 5, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET. The event is free and open to the public.

For the second year, age-eligible performers who are participating as part of Drum Corps International’s DrumLine Battle or SoundSport programs—whether or not they are a member of an Open or World Class drum corps—will also be given the opportunity to compete.

This opportunity is available to members of SoundSport teams who have participated in a sanctioned SoundSport competition or exhibition performance at any DCI event this summer who fits in the DCI participant age limit (14-21 years old). This includes individual members of your ensemble travelling to World Championships independently of your team’s summer participation plans. Thanks to the inclusion of vocal and woodwind categories, members wishing to do so can also display their talents on any instrument!

The entry fee for participation in the DCI Performer’s Showcase is $25 per entry, or a $50 flat fee for ensembles (regardless of the size of the group). Payment will be invoiced to the SoundSport team’s director. Please have students register for the DCI Performer’s Showcase by July 22, 2015.
