ROME, N.Y. – The Drums Along the Mohawk will not hold its annual performance this year as the Rome Free Academy stadium undergoes scheduled construction this summer.
Claudette Wire, director of the Drums along the Mohawk, says the committee could not find another acceptable venue in time for the Drum Corps International planning deadline.
The Rome City School District proposed stadium renovations in its 2019 Capital Project plan. The proposal included a new athletic complex at the Turin Street site, with a new stadium, baseball facility, softball facility and field house.
A DCI Syracuse event is planned for July 30, 2020.
