We know this is a difficult time for everyone as we all respond to the COVID-19 crisis. The events worldwide have impacted Drum Corps International as well, forcing cancellation of the 2020 Summer Tour as of Wednesday, March 25.

Above all else, the entire DCI community remains unified in its commitment to preserve the health, safety, and well-being of everyone involved in our activity.

From all of us at the SUMMER MUSIC GAMES in Cincinnati, we thank you for your understanding as we work through this difficult time. We wish all of you the best and hope that you’re able to remain healthy and safe through this challenging period.  We thank you for your continued support and look forward to seeing you in 2021 for the 25th anniversary of the SUMMER MUSIC GAMES in Cincinnati
