The Maricopa Unified School District is bringing Maricopans an opportunity to experience the Arizona Academy Drum and Bugle Corps on Saturday, June 26.
From 8-10 a.m., there will be a demonstration for elementary age children. Participants will have the opportunity to meet the performers and try out the instruments. Later that day, from 4-9 p.m., there will be a music and marching clinic for 8th grade and high school students who have band instrument or color guard experience. This clinic will include dinner, hosted by the Corps.
The Academy, a non-profit organization, has 150 members who are ages 16-21 from many local high school and state universities. For additional information, visit www.dci.org.
