Drum Corps International (DCI) is a nonprofit youth organization serving junior drum and bugle corps around the globe. From modest beginnings in 1972, DCI has developed into a powerful youth activity with artistic and organizational influence on the world's drum and bugle corps, marching bands, and related activities.

DCI's crowning achievement is the unparalleled experiences it offers to thousands of youth between the ages of 14 and 22 -- life-enhancing, character-building experiences, including the pure joy of learning and playing music, the exhilaration of athletic achievement, and the thrill of performing before thousands of cheering fans time and again.
