FJM Client Corps rise to Top of Opening DCI Weekend
Drum Corps International has kicked off the opening weekend by matching up the activities top 8 corps from one year ago. Two contests were held in Saginaw and Round Rock, TX on back to back nights, with FJM Corps coming out on top! Here’s how our FJM Corps fared.
The first show in Saginaw saw FJM’s Carolina Crown place 1st with their “Rach Star” production. This show seamlessly blends the both classical and rock musical to perfection! Taking the silver in Saginaw was The Cavaliers. “XtraodinarY” promises to be a don’t miss program full of surprises along with those trademark Cavie style stunning visual impacts. In 3rd place were the Blue Devils and their show entitled, “The Beat my Heart Skipped.” Once again, the Devs are the epitome of California cool and the sophistication of this production will once again have them in the hunt for a championship. Placing 5th on the first night was the always popular Phantom Regiment. Their take on “Juliet” is as gorgeous as it is romantic, and this corps has a lot to build on with such a solid early showing.
The next night at the Round Rock show, it was The Cavaliers taking the top spot by keeping a consistent score in the 74 range. But the other FJM Corps weren’t far behind taking 4 of the top 6 spots!
2011 promises to be an exciting DCI season! Check back often with FJM on both our website and Facebook page for all the details of how our FJM Corps are doing!
