Rochester Resonates with Music: Drum Corps Associates’ Final World Championships

by Madonna

Rochester, NY – The vibrant melodies of music filled the air in Rochester as the city played host to the final Drum Corps Associates (DCA) World Championships over the Labor Day weekend. This marked the 21st time that Rochester welcomed this prestigious event, and it may well be the last of its kind in the city’s history. The reason behind this bittersweet farewell is the consolidation of two prominent drum corps organizations, with DCA set to merge with Drum Corps International, headquartered in Indianapolis.

In a captivating audio journey, WXXI’s Noelle Evans invites us to the Riverside Convention Center in downtown Rochester, where the opening night of an illustrious three-day competition unfolded. This event served as a grand farewell to a chapter in Rochester’s musical legacy, with the added poignancy of paying homage to the city’s own jazz luminary, Chuck Mangione.
