Almost 30 years after its first crossing of the Atlantic Ocean in 1975, Beatrix Drum & Bugle Corps has set off for its sixth trip to the North-American continent. In 1975, the corps traveled to the southwestern part of Canada, where the first encounter with the drum corps phenomenon took place.
At major DCI shows beginning his weekend, an additional percussion performance judge will evaluate corps. The additional judge will also evaluate corps at select Division II & III shows through the summer, and throughout World Championships in Denver.
