Corps Encore, Utah’s premier marching music event, is an exciting spectacle of sight and sound. Every summer, a variety of competitive junior drum and bugle corps from all over North America stop in Utah on their national tours in preparation for the DCI World Championships.
Held at Weber State University’s beautiful Stewart Stadium, Corps Encore is a great night of affordable family fun and a Utah tradition. The day starts out at 9:00am with the BKXperience-Perform! Clinic at Weber State University open to middle school, high school and college band students interested in learning performance techniques and make friends. Also, the Spark! Ideas Conference will return for a 2nd year also at Weber State University. More details on these exciting events are coming soon. Come out to see the Blue Knights clinic as they rehearse in the stadium at 3:30 pm to 5:00pm. All these pre-show events are free to the public!
