By | Drum & Bugle Corps | No Comments

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic and cancelling of the DCI summer schedule, summer rehearsals for Minnesota Brass Drum and Bugle Corps are on hold. The hope is that there remains an option for a limited performance opportunity later in the summer. The winter ensembles and summer 2021 drum and bugle corps are still on schedule as planned. Please stay tuned for future announcements and dates. MBI hopes that you and your family are safe in these trying times.
