Music, movement, precision

Drum corps from as far away as Canada and Taiwan perform during Wednesday’s annual “Music to the Core III” held at Hall High School in Spring Valley. Also performing at Wednesday’s competition were drum corps from Iowa, New Jersey, Tennessee, Michigan, Connecticut and Texas. Ranging in size from 75 to 185 members, the corps played all types of brass instruments and drums while moving rapidly and in precision around the field. Winning Wednesday’s competition was the Genesis Corps from Texas with its rendition of the Wizard of Oz.
