Thanks to a resolution passed by the U.S. House of Representatives on July 26, this week (Sept. 12-18) has been designated as National Arts in Education Week.

The resolution states: [...] Arts education, comprising a rich array of disciplines including dance, music, theatre, media arts, literature, design, and visual arts, is a core academic subject and an essential element of a complete and balanced education for all students.

The exciting performances thousands of students participate in annually on the Drum Corps International Tour would not be possible without the continued support of arts programs in schools across America.
