Dakota Drumline recently participated in two major competitions.  The first competition Dakota Drumline participated in was the Michigan Color Guard Circuit (MCGC) State championships.  The Dakota Drumline ended up getting second place in states.
The second competition Dakota Drumline participated in was the Winter Guard International finals (WGI).   The competition was held in Dayton, Ohio.  The performances were held in the University of Dayton Arena (UD Arena).  There were many bands that participated in this competition.  The music that Dakota Drumline played was written for a marching percussion group and a front ensemble which adds to the style of the music.  There were also electronic instruments.  The bands were judged on music effect and visual effect.
The Dakota Drumline practiced a lot before these competitions.  They would practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30-9:30 and Sundays from 12-5 for about five months straight.  Sometimes they would practice on Fridays from 2:30-4:30 as well.
Dakota Drumline member, Gabe Barbera, said the experience overall was life-changing.   Gabe said, “The experience was actually life-changing.   Getting to compete with drumlines around the country is like coming in contact with aliens for me, and it feels great.  Getting to see the best of the best groups from around the country in person practice and compete against each other was in all-new experience.  It’s my new favorite time of the year.”  Congrats to the Dakota drumline!
