D’Addario Percussion endorsed groups took home the gold and silver medals at the 2019 Drum Corps International World Championships last week.

In World Class Medals, The Blue Devils took home gold Gold (Evans & Promark), and Bluecoats took home Silver (Evans).

D’Addario Percussion also had a successful week taking over the lot at Military Park with partners Music & Arts, Gridbook Percussion, and Lot Riot. In the lot, attendees were treated to mini-clinics with Mark Perrett, and Harvey Thompson & Ralph Nader of BYOS. Additionally, various ensembles like The Blue Knights, and The Blue Devils warmed up in the performance space, letting participants get up close and personal with their favorite drum corps.
