by Drum Corps International

From the Blue Devils and Phantom Regiment Web sites: Phantom Regiment and Blue Devils are pleased to announce a partnership between their two world-renowned youth music organizations to form Precision Arts. Precision Arts is a collaboration between the 11-time Drum Corps International champion Blue Devils from Concord, Calif., and the 1996 Drum Corps International champion Phantom Regiment from Rockford, Ill. These two groups have been dedicated to the education and development of young people for decades. Precision Arts was formed with the goal to be the ultimate destination for educational events, products, and opportunities. Precision Arts will be dedicated to the education and development of young people and as a resource for educators. The centerpiece of this first-of-its-kind partnership will be "The Ultimate Band Camp Experience." This camp will bring together some of the world's best music, marching and visual educators -- all staff members of the two great drum corps and the most sought-after clinicians from around the world -- to teach students and directors for four days at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, Tenn. Also included is a very special bonus of attending and performing with both corps at the Drum Corps International Masters of the Summer Music Games in Murfreesboro, Tenn. Read more.
