Radio Riel’s 10th Marching Monday!

It’s Radio Riel’s 11th Annual Marching Monday!

Drum Corps International finals were this weekend and the Santa Clara Vanguard took the crown for the first time in 19 years with a score of 98.625. Please click here to read about all of the details from DCI Finals this year.

Today’s program on Radio Riel features the music of marching! You will hear orchestral performances of classic American marches, British marches, Scottish marches, as well as recordings from Drum Corps performing at DCI Finals in years past, college marching bands and military bands.

Here is a definition of what a “drum corps” is in the modern, North American sense of the term, as noted by Wikipedia:

A drum and bugle corps or drum corps is a musical marching unit (similar to a marching band) consisting of brass instruments, percussion instruments, and color guard. The activity originated in the United States and Canada, but has spread to parts of Europe and Asia. Typically operating as independent non‐profit organizations, drum corps perform on‐field competitions, parades, festivals and other civic functions. The prime age for participation is 14–22, but the activity extends throughout age groups younger and older.”

To learn more about competitive, North American drum corps, check out the Drum Corps International website.
