HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - Young area musicians got a chance to attend a new program Thursday.
The Bluecoats Drum and Bugle Corps conducted a day-long camp for student performers from across North Alabama.
The BLUE WAY - South was a chance for these students, ages 14-21, to perform alongside the elite drum corps at Milton Frank Stadium.
The corps was in Huntsville, ahead of Friday's DCI North Alabama 2016, a regional competition for some of the world's top marching music ensembles.
The Huntsville camp provided instruction in brass, snare drum and tenor drums, drum major and color guard.
