Arsenal PA has been closely following and adhering to the guidance of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention along with the World Health Organization and we are committed to providing the safest possible environment as we get through these most difficult of times. Global health and economic conditions are currently affecting our ability to operate Arsenal Performing Arts and our flagship organization, Arsenal Drum and Bugle Corps amidst these challenging times.
We believe in supporting the health and well-being of all participants in Arsenal Performing Arts, Inc., programs, including our members, staff, volunteers and families.
After much deliberation with the Drum Corps International Voting Membership, the decision has been made to cancel the 2020 DCI summer tour. We at Arsenal PA agree and support this decision. We will be working on other possible options for the summer that will depend on the conditions of our environment and what is allowed.
We will continue to work on all options available to us during this time. We intend to use the remainder of the 2020 calendar year to prepare for the future. Our hearts go out to the thousands of performers in the pageantry activity that have been affected by the coronavirus crisis.
