What is the 2022 BKX-Perform! DATR Clinic, and what does it include?

The 2022 BKX-Perform DATR clinic is a day of learning and instruction for brass, woodwinds, percussion, color guard and drum majors.  Participants will spend the day learning techniques, exercises and a piece to perform.  The clinic culminates with a performance in Canvas Stadium in front of the crowd, as the opening act for Drums Along the Rockies 2022!

The clinic will be an all-day event!  Registration begins at 8am and will be held at the University Center for the Arts (UCA) on the Colorado State University campus.  Registration includes a BKX shirt (shirt not guaranteed if you register after July 1st) lunch, and dinner.  Clinic registration does not include a ticket to Drums Along the Rockies.
