Does the average Drum Corps International marching member think drum corps should be more like marching bands? What percentage of top-tier corps members previously marched with another group? Are the traditions of drum corps still relevant to members in 2010?

The answers to these and other intriguing questions are found in a brand new DCI statistical study. In this week's Field Pass presented by Zildjian, host Dan Potter has an exclusive first look at the results of the 2010 Project Persona survey with its author, marketing researcher and DCI at-large board member, Steve Auditore.
