“The popularity of Fathom and DCI’s annual ‘Big, Loud & Live’ events continues to grow,” said Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president of NCM Fathom Events. “These stirring cinema competitions give everyone a front-row seat to watch the most elite marching music ensembles in the world.”From modest beginnings four decades ago, Drum Corps International has developed into a powerful, nonprofit, global youth activity with far-reaching artistic, educational and organizational influence. Participation in a DCI corps provides a life-changing experience for youth through the art of marching music performance. Their competitive summer tour, consisting of DCI-sanctioned competitions (known as the Drum Corps International Tour) throughout the United States and Canada, culminates in August with the week-long DCI World Championships. Through the annual DCI Tour and World Championships, Drum Corps International provides entertainment to millions through live performances and other events. DCI continues a tradition of exceptionally high-quality performance ensembles, with membership in the top corps highly sought after and extremely competitive, attracting the interest of potential members from many countries. DCI has hosted 40 World Championships in 16 North American cities since its founding in 1972.
