Aug. 11 is your chance to catch drum corps action that's not available ANYWHERE else! And, it's your last chance this year to see ALL of the world's top drum corps in one place at one time! On the heels of the great success of both the DCI Classic Countdown and last summer's DCI Cinema Live telecast, DCI is returning to the big screen on Aug. 11 with a telecast of Division I quarterfinals! If you can't make it to Foxboro for finals, this is absolutely the next best thing. Imagine taking in the power, precision and pageantry of drum corps while enjoying popcorn and Skittles in the friendly confines of your local theater! Tom Blair, longtime executive producer of the DCI World Championships DVDs as well as the DCI television broadcast, put it simply: "Grab your popcorn, put your feet up, grab on to the armrests and prepare to be blown away," Blair said. "As thrilled as I am to be a part of the debut of DCI on ESPN, I'm equally excited to work with Steve Rondinaro and Tom Blair again on the theater cinecast of quarterfinals on Aug. 11! THIS one is for the die-hard fans who support drum corps with such passion and loyalty," said famed DCI personality Dennis DeLucia, who will lend his broadcast abilities to DCI for the cinecast. Drum corps broadcast veteran Steve Rondinaro is also anticipating the event. "I'm delighted at how the live cinecast thing is growing. Remember, when I started hosting the Championships back in '79 it was five hours-plus live on PBS. Broadcasting drum corps live again is great fun. Last year was great. It must be something experiencing it in the theater (at least I hope it is), but I wouldn't give up my seat or my job for anything. Besides, August 11 is my birthday and where better to spend it with a few thousand of my closest friends?" Rondinaro said. Stay tuned to DCI.org for further details.
