Drum Corps International is mentioned in a recent National Public Radio (NPR) episode of "All Things Considered." This past August, tens of thousands of drum corps fans headed to more than 325 movie theaters across the country for the fifth annual "Big, Loud & Live" simulcast of the World Championship Quarterfinals. The Quarterfinals broadcast in addition to DCI's spring "Countdown" series has been part of a growing trend of atypical events showing up in local cinemas including operas, Broadway musicals and sporting events.
