Drum Corps International held its World Class Championships on the Indiana University at Bloomington campus the first weekend of August.
Twenty Division I Drum & Bugle Corps gathered for the last time this season to go head-to-head in competition for the grand phantom regimentize…the gold medal. Phantom Regiment of Rockford, Illinois emerged victorious, and by the narrowest margin in DCI history. They stood alone, for the first time in their 52-year old history as a corps.
Among the 150 Phantom Regiment members stood a 2007 graduate of Batavia High School, Stephan Garber.
