The first page in the history books of a new corps was written last week, as Legends from Kalamazoo, Mich. took the field at the DCI Kalamazoo contest, their first competitive appearance in the new Open Class. After they left the stadium, with their first performance well received by a supportive hometown crowd, Drum Corps International caught up with drum major Katie Vellom and executive director Ibe Sodawalla to get the story behind the birth of Legends.
