Appalachian Sound took the field in the corps’ first-ever SoundSport performance before the Drum Corps International Southeastern Championships in the Georgia Dome. As part of the slate of SoundSport performances, Appalachian Sound performed alongside groups from Alabama, Florida, Virginia, Ohio, and Canada. The corps laid down a solid performance of its 2016 production, Echoes of Appalachia, receiving a Bronze Rating from the SoundSport judges. As a SoundSport ensemble, Appalachian Sound enjoyed the opportunity of performing the SoundSport Anthem “Raise Your Voice” alongside each of the seven participating groups in a massed ensemble during intermission of the Southeastern Championships, and reserved seats to enjoy the entire day’s festivities.
Appalachian Sound heads to Indianapolis, Indiana for the 2016 SoundSport Music and Food Festival on Saturday, August 13th prior to the Drum Corps International World Championship Finals.
