Mark Arnold Selected for DCI Hall of Fame

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Drum Corps International has announced the 2014 Hall of Fame selectees of honored individuals who have left their mark on the world of marching music. From instructors to designers to innovators, administrators and others, today’s Hall is made up of more than 100 men and women influential in the history of drum and bugle corps. Each winter, members of the drum corps community participate in a nomination process, informing DCI’s Hall of Fame Committee of those whom they feel should be recognized as part of drum corps’ legacy. In April, current Hall of Fame members and corps directors participate in an election process to decide who will join the ranks of this prestigious society.

Ascend Performing Arts, Inc is proud to announce executive director, Mark Arnold, has been selected to be inducted into the DCI Hall of Fame. Mark and four other individuals will be recognized during the week of the DCI World Championships in Indianapolis this August.
