In the midst of his first year as Athletic and Symphonic Concert Band Director, John Eckstine had a goal of bringing more attention to the Monmouth College Marching Arts Department. Eckstine has done just that by bringing the Drum Corps International (DCI) Colts Drum and Bugle Corps from Dubuque, Iowa for their annual spring training on the Monmouth College campus until June 29th before they travel for competitions come July. Staying right on campus all month, Director Eckstine shares what makes up the DCI Colts Drum and Bugle Corps:

Area band directors, music educators, parents, students, and the public are invited and encouraged to attend the Colts Drum and Bugle Corps rehearsals on the Monmouth College campus.
