Drum Corps International (DCI) is the non-profit governing body for junior drum and bugle corps in the US and Canada. It is composed of member corps who have earned their membership through competition. A drum and bugle corps is a musical marching ensemble consisting of brass instruments, percussion instruments, synthesizers and color guard. DCI is a summer touring circuit. A typical show may include on-field adaptations of jazz, new age, classical, rock, and even original music.
