Focused Cadets band together under common vision

by Dan Potter

This past Saturday, spring training for the entire 2018 Drum Corps International tour came to parade rest as the community paused to consider the topic of mutual care and respect. This week's Field Pass with Dan Potter gives us backstage access to the event, which was webcast live from Bluecoats' spring training at Indiana Wesleyan University. Then, Dan hits the road to check in on The Cadets at their camp in Ada, Ohio.
