DCI winter meetings update/Saturday panelists named

by Dave Wilson

As we mentioned yesterday, DCI.org will be out in full force during the winter meetings coming up this weekend in Pasadena, Calif. Beginning Friday morning and all weekend, look for news, photo galleries and videos of all the goings-on. We just talked with George Hopkins, who is moderating a special discussion about the future of DCI. This discussion takes place Saturday night, Jan. 28, at 8 p.m. at the Pasadena Hilton. Hopkins said that Wayne Downey (Blue Devils brass arranger), Ralph Hardimon (acclaimed percussion arranger), Marc Sylvester (Cadets drill designer) Dave Gibbs (Blue Devils director) and Jeff Fiedler (Cavaliers director) have all committed to participate in the panel, titled, "DCI: A Future to be lived into." Hopkins also noted that more panelists could be added later in the week. Read more about the forum.
