Upon discussion with and guidance from Drum Corps International, under the recommendation of the Centers for Disease Control, and in compliance with the President’s Guidelines 0316, Louisiana Stars Drum and Bugle Corps will be cancelling the April 24-26 Brass and Color Guard camp as well as the May 2-3 Percussion camp.
Along with all members of the DCI community, Louisiana Stars maintains its commitment to protect performers, staff, and volunteers, along with housing site hosts, fans and all who are associated with the tour’s nationwide operational structure. This commitment remains the top priority.
We share in the disappointment our members are feeling, but are firm in our belief that this is the right course of action given the current climate. Earlier today, DCI announced their efforts to begin planning an adjusted 2020 tour schedule and we are hopeful for a positive outcome that allows for a continuation of a healthy and memorable season. As the situation surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak progresses around the country, we are monitoring our area and adjusting our plans as necessary.
Members should await contact from their instructional staff regarding further pre-season preparations. Any questions should be directed to Corps Director Aaron Theall at firstname.lastname@example.org.
