Order DCI Tickets and Support HMK!
Post date: Jun 4, 2010 11:46:30 AM
I am excited to announce an incredible opportunity for our students! Each summer, hundreds of the most talented young men and women from across the world participate in the drum corps activity. For those who aren't familiar, these groups are essentially professional level marching bands (without the woodwind instruments) that spend the summer months touring the country and competing with one another at the highest possible level. The level of musicianship, technique, and artistry displayed by the top drum corps is absolutely incredible and is a MUST see by students who are involved in the marching arts!!!!
For more information about DCI, visit: http://www.dci.org/about/ or check out some DCI on YouTube!
If you haven't seen a drum corps show live, now is your chance to have an experience that you'll never forget! Some of DCI's top corps (including the Cadets!!!!) will be performing at a number of local shows:
> Chambersburg PA (July 6th)
> West Chester University (August 5th)
> Clifton NJ (August 8th)
If you are free and are looking for a great experience, I encourage you to attend one (or two, or three!) of these shows!
NOW FOR THE GREAT NEWS - YOUR ONLINE TICKET PURCHASE WILL SUPPORT THE HEMPFIELD HIGH SCHOOL MARCHING BAND!
Through a partnership with Youth Education in the Arts (YEA), we have arranged for the Hempfield Marching Band to receive a commission on the number of tickets sold to both of these events by Hempfield supporters!!!!

If you are looking for a GREAT show to attend, I would recommend the West Chester University show on August 5th. The Cadets (the corps that Dr. Mudrick's son, Eli is currently marching with) are one of the best in the world and will be HERE at Hempfield on August 4th and 5th in preparation for the WCU show! It would be great to have a HUGE crowd of supporters at the WCU show to support Eli and the Cadets!!!! In addition, the Carolina Crown, Phantom Regiment, Blue Stars, Blue Knights, Crossmen, and Jersey Surf will be in attendance!
REMEMBER TO SELECT HEMPFIELD FROM THE DROP DOWN MENU BEFORE YOU ORDER! TELL YOUR FRIENDS :)
Thanks for reading, and consider taking the family out for a night of the marching arts that is sure to inspire your young musician/guard member to strive for excellence this season!!!!
