The Blue Knights Drum and Bugle Corps is currently making plans for the summer of 2021. As we continue this planning process, our number one priority is to provide a safe, productive, and memorable experience for all our members, staff and volunteers.

The Blue Knights seek to begin in-person training on July 1, and after a period of rehearsal and local performances, the corps will be joining other corps for a series of shows in the intermountain region, Texas, and into Indianapolis for the DCI August event series.

Our tour and activities will be guided by the recommendations of the CDC and the DCI Tour Reopening Task Force regarding member safety throughout the summer.

“Ultimately we must assure a safe environment guided by the advice and direction of the professionals who have been helping us through this process” states Ascend Performing Arts CEO Mark Arnold. “We are committed to providing the incredible, life changing experience Drum Corps brings to our members. Never has this been more important.”
