SALEM, Va. (WFXR) — After two years, the Annual Summer Music Games of Southwest Virginia is back and hosting four Drum Corps International (DCI) competition teams on Tuesday.
The Pride of Salem Band Boosters is presenting the Summer Music Games on Tuesday, Aug. 2, at 7 p.m. at the Salem Stadium located at 1008 Texas Street. DCI officials say the event begins at 7 p.m. with the first group kicking things off at 7:15 p.m.
Band booster officials tell WFXR News that the event is the main fundraiser for the Pride of Salem Marching Band. All profits from the events advertising, sponsorships, donations, and tickets are used to fund the Salem High School Band Program.
Tickets range in price from $25 to $35 and can be purchased online. Day of event ticket price increases by $5.
Each corp consists of 30 to 135 members between the ages of 14 to 22, depending on their division, and competes in an 11-minute show that they spend all summer rehearsing, DCI officials say.
The following corps will be competing and performing encore exhibitions:
Drum Corps International carries the slogan of “marching music major league” even though many people describe it as “professional marching band”. To the average person watching a DCI performance, it may look to be a marching band but DCI groups only have brass, percussion, and color guard. This means woodwind instruments (saxophone, clarinet, flute, etc.) aren’t included.
Sponsorship spots are still available. Any questions regarding sponsorship opportunities or the Summer Music Games can be directed to [email protected]
