Veterans Memorial Stadium in La Crosse, WI. I’ve seen lots of drum corps shows on lots of fields, but the way the weather played with the gorgeous landscape behind the field that day (summer ‘14) was incredible. A bit of rain at the start of the show, then strong rainbows, clear skies, and this gorgeous fog that ran through the hills behind the stadium. Plus, it was a nice open space, a beautifully renovated stadium, and drum corps a plenty, offering up incredible show after incredible show, as well as the world’s most gorgeous and incredible sounds.
Sadly, seeing the tumblr handle “thatdrumcorpsguy” on BuzzFeed seems to me to be the most mainstream exposure drum corps has gotten in a while (if you don’t count the story on CBS Evening News this past August).
