Nearly 120 musicians attended the third annual European drum corps "Mega Clinic" last Saturday in Dordrecht, the Netherlands.
Famed DCI clinician Jim Casella led the clinic for front ensembles. Other participating clinicians included Bruce Vrancken (Belgium), Rob Hagen (Holland), Erwin van Gemert (Holland), Maurice Groen (Holland), Ramon Opmeer (Holland) and Hiels Oving (Holland). The event was sponsored by Drum Corps Europe and Percussion Projects. For the first time, the clinic also featured master classes for snares and tenors. More than 35 pit musicians and 75 drummers attended. Another drum corps organization in Europe, Drum Corps Germany, will hold a workshop for brass, percussion, pit and color guard on March 6 and 7.
