As members of the “Red Team” from Dubuque, Iowa reflect on their summer season to this point, they don’t just see drill formations improving or hear notes sounding more in tune. The corps members have also found a lot of growth and achievement in the way they interact with one another.

“We’ve definitely been getting a lot stronger physically and mentally, but we’ve also gotten a lot closer,“ said Colts drum major Jason Schubert. “It’s always great to see all the friendships that form through this activity and to watch this group come together as a family is really special to me.” -Drum Corps International

        For the first time since 2007, the Colts performed under the lights of J. Birney Crum Stadium in Allentown Pennsylvania. For many, this was a once in a lifetime opportunity. The performance was well received by the audience, earning a standing ovation from the crowd as the corps left the field. One volunteer who was in the stands mentioned that "the old school drum corps guys sitting around me loved the show and gave it a thumbs up". Even after rain delays, the corps was able to produce a solid and memorable performance.
