The drumline of Jubal Drum & Bugle Corps won the ‘Grand Prize’ at the DrumLine Battle in Lithuania on Saturday. The drummers from Dordrecht – The Netherlands were up against Eastern European competitors.
Jubal looks back on a successful weekend in Panevėžys, where it hosted workshops and performances during the first ‘marching event’ in the Baltics. The organisation of the event was in the hands of Artspark, an initiative led by Daniel Ray, that introduces young people of Lithuania to marching arts. Music groups from Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Poland came to the Cido Arena in Panevėžys.
“It’s really great to see that the activity that we enjoy so much at Jubal is also steadily growing over here,” said Jubal on Facebook. To conclude the event, the Jubal drumline gave a demo performance with pieces from their ‘Beyond’ programme.
