DCI Performs at Central High School

The Drum Corps International made a stop by Westosha Central High School this past Sunday, performing a show that lasted from seven in the evening until nine thirty.

The Drum Corps International, or DCI, have used the Central football field as a performance ground for the past two years due in no small part to the efforts of Central band director Adam Scheele, who has been an essential member in helping coordinate bands from all across the country into one concert.

The concert began with a raising of the colors and a rendition of the Star Spangled Banner performed by Central trumpeter Keeley Denton.

The performers in order, along with their respective states:

Racine Scouts – Racine, WI

Kilties – Racine, WI

Colt Cadets – Dubuque, IA

Legends – Kalamazoo, MI


Pioneer – Milwaukee, WI

Spirit of Atlanta – Atlanta, GA

Cavaliers – Rosemont, IL

Each DCI band performed a set of 4-7 songs, with Racine Scouts performing an entire musical movement.  The performances included choreographed dancing from both dedicated dancers and the instrumentalists, all while being observed by a panel of judges.

Following the conclusion of the Cavaliers’ pieces, Spirit of Atlanta took the field once more to perform an encore selection of songs while the judges deliberated on their scoring.

The highest score of the night, with a score of 75.4, was given to Cavaliers for their Secret Society repertoire, which included a song list as follows: Rose of Arimathea and Air by Hans Zimmer, Drum Music (Movement III: Incinerate) by John Mackey, Secret Society by Drew Shanefield, and Enterprising Young Men by Michael Giacchino.

Refreshments were provided by Central’s music department and parking took place on the old football field.IMG_1163_opt IMG_1172_opt IMG_1178_opt IMG_1200_opt IMG_1206_opt
