The action taking place as part of the upcoming “2021 Drum Corps International Celebration Tour” and three days of Indianapolis events won’t be the only way for performers of all ages from around the world to share in the excitement of Marching Music’s Major League!
This summer, the SoundSport International Online Music Festival along with the highly popular DCI Performers Showcase will offer individual performers and ensembles from around the globe the opportunity to participate and compete in the DCI season without leaving their hometowns!
With traditional and all-new participation opportunities for soloists, ensembles of all sizes and “virtual” ensembles, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to be a part of the 2021 DCI Celebration Tour!
Among the performance opportunities for this summer like no other:
SoundSport® Medalist Class
SoundSport’s “Festival-Rating” contest for small performing ensembles—now expanded to include large performing ensembles! Regardless of the age of your performers and the size of your performance area, whether you’re “on-the-move” or stationary, performing as a drum corps, marching band, concert band, jazz ensemble, orchestra, wind ensemble, Mariachi ensemble, athletic “pep” band, or other creative performing group, your music ensemble can participate in the SoundSport Medalist Class to spotlight your unique talents and creativity to the DCI community and the world.
SoundSport® Virtual Ensemble Class
Designed for ensembles of any size who are unable to gather in person. Create your virtual ensemble by collecting performance videos from each participant and meld them together into one audio/video package. All ages of performers are welcome!
DCI Virtual Performers Showcase
For nearly five decades, DCI has celebrated the achievements of remarkable performers by staging head-to-head contests for individuals and ensembles. Known to many traditionally as the “I&E Competition,” the DCI Performers Showcase returns in 2021 in an online format which is open to performers of all ages from around the world. It'll once again spotlight exceptional performances from creative and talented people—but now with even more categories than ever before.
