Tournament of Drums 2024: Friday, Aug. 2 at 7 pm at Prairie High School Stadium!
The Iowa Music & Arts Association (IMAA) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit founded by alumni, friends and supporters of the former Emerald Knights/Nite Express Drum and Bugle Corps of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. In support of its mission to promote, preserve and perpetuate the education of music and the arts for all, the IMAA sponsors the annual Tournament of Drums DCI Open Class competition.

Application deadline: March 15, 2024
