Marching Music Day

This week, on March 4th, we celebrate Marching Music Day!

March forth to the rhythm of life on Marching Music Day!

In honor of dedicated musicians and performers of many diverse styles and backgrounds, Marching Music Day celebrates all varieties of the art forms bringing us “music on the move.”

Drum Corps International founded Marching Music Day to celebrate and share marching music as an engaging and ever-expanding art form around the world, and to help celebrate Music In Our Schools Month. As an ideal play on words, March Fourth was chosen
