Drum Corps International has long history in Florida, with Orlando having held the DCI World Championships at Camping World Stadium (Formerly the Citrus Bowl) in 1996, 1997, 1998, & 2003 and Miami hosting in 1983.  Florida has seen major players in the Drum Corps field competition with Suncoast Sound, Teal Sound, Heat Wave, Tampa Bay Thunder, Sun Devils, Florida Brass, Magic of Orlando, and dozens of other corps over the years.  In recent years, Florida Drum Corps has seen a resurgence with Heat Wave taking the field in DCI competition, and Florida Express, Impact and Solaris entering into the new DCI SoundSport Division, and the return of 3 DCI contests last summer and 2 this summer.

SoundSport is a relatively new venture for DCI to illuminate both smaller drum & bugle corps as well as other performing and pageantry ensembles. This summer, the Orlando DCI show, held July 8th at Camping World Stadium, will feature a SoundSport Competition.

Central Florida Sounds of Freedom Band and Colorguard will be entering the SoundSport competition this summer for the first time.  This will mark the band’s first performance in this venue, first performance at a Drum corps event, and will allow thousands of people to see us for the first time!
