Drum corps fans at the 2009 Collegiate Marching Band Fest.
This Sunday, Oct. 3, Drum Corps International will return to the venerable J. Birney Crum Stadium for a fall visit at the 15th Annual Collegiate Marching Band Festival in Allentown Pa. Presented by Vivace Productions, the exhibition event will feature the performances of 20 college marching ensembles beginning at 12 p.m. ET. $15 general admission tickets will be available at the stadium on the day of the event ($13 for students/seniors). Hey drum corps fans! If you're coming, be sure to swing on over to the Drum Corps International tent to chat with DCI staff and other drum corps fanatics, test your skills with a round of DCI cornhole, take your picture with the DCI Championship trophy, and shop for some cool DCI apparel and swag. Before you leave, sign up for our "Super Fan" mailing list for your chance to win a limited number of incredible prizes. And while you're exploring the event, be on the lookout for local drum corps who will be out and about this weekend as well. Be among the first to purchase your 2011 DCI Eastern Classic Tickets: Even though the summer is just behind us, guests at Sunday's event will have the opportunity to order tickets to the 2011 DCI Eastern Classic more than a week BEFORE they go on sale to the general public! The two-night packages start at just $30, giving you access to both exciting nights of competition. Fill out a special order form and request your seating preferences for when you return to Allentown on Friday, Aug. 5 and Saturday, Aug. 6, 2011. See you at the stadium on Sunday, and don't be a stranger! Learn more about the Collegiate Marching Band Festival.
