Event


After three years separated along divisional lines in San Antonio and Indianapolis, Drum Corps International’s Individual & Ensemble (I&E) Championship presented by System Blue is set to return to its original format in 2013.

Members from World and Open Class will compete against each other as part of World Championships Week in Indianapolis, tomorrow, Wednesday, Aug. 7, beginning at 10 a.m. ET.

Each year, I&E gives corps members the opportunity to show off their individual and group talents, performing solo and ensemble pieces perfected outside of their normal corps rehearsal schedules. Even further, vocal and woodwind categories give members whose primary instruments may not be included in a normal drum corps setting the chance to perform.

The I&E Championship is a free event and open to the public.

Date/Time


Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2013 — 10 a.m. to approximately 4 p.m.

Indianapolis' Georgia Street combines a pedestrian walkway with urban landscaping, shopping, restaurants and more.

Schedule


From 10 a.m. to approximately 4 p.m., members from 24 World and Open Class corps will showcase their talents.
