Spring has sprung and the summer is drawing nearer, leaving no better time to get on board with the Operation: GrowDrumCorps campaign to benefit Phantom Regiment!

During this special period, all of Drum Corps International’s World, Open and All-Age Class corps are banding together to engage in a special contest designed to give you, your friends, family and neighbors an added incentive to enjoy a 2012 DCI Tour event in your area.

Not only will you have the chance to experience the thrilling performances of the 2012 DCI Tour, but you’ll also be able to directly support the outstanding young people who comprise Marching Music’s Major League”.
