The Jong-Holland Juniors will be participating in the DCE Championships. It is the first time that the junior corps from Zwijndrecht - The Netherlands will be competing in the Junior Class of the European event in Kerkrade.
The Jong-Holland Juniors have been taking part in the Drum Corps Netherlands Championships since 2009 but have not previously participated in Drum Corps Europe. According to the staff, the corps is ready. It has enjoyed participating in DCN for years, it suits the development of the corps, and the Jong-Holland Juniors are a good match for the top of the Junior Class.
Participation in DCE has long been a topic of discussion, but this year they have decided to enter. The enthusiasm among the members, parents and staff is great. "This is a good time to enter and see how it goes", said a spokesman of the corps.
In the Parkstad Limburg Stadium, Jong-Holland Juniors will perform their show 'Shapes, Sounds & Colors' on the field. It is the story about an artist who brings a painting to life. The show includes the songs 'Somebody That I Used To Know', 'Candy', 'Set Fire To The Rain' and 'Good Time'.
Jong-Holland Juniors bring the number of participants in the Junior Class to six. However, the total number of participants will not change, because the Staffordshire Knights have let DCE know that they can't take part this year. Drum Corps Europe would like to wish the Staffordshire Knights all the best for the future, hopefully the corps will return to the contest field soon.
