  • ABOUT






Founded in 1981, the Friends of DCI program started with a small, dedicated group of about 30 charter members. The exclusive, members-only program today includes nearly 400 members. More than 180 of the current Friends members have been contributing annually for more than a decade.

Membership in the prestigious Friends of DCI program provides exclusive, partners-only benefits, such as complimentary premium seating at select DCI-produced events, special access to drum corps media, VIP event access and more. In addition, Friends have the benefit of belonging to an exclusive "inner circle" of our most committed fans who wish to encourage and enjoy "Achievement at a Higher Level," today and long into the future.
