DCA Medals graphic 2016On the evening of September 2nd, 2016, the CADRE Drum Ensemble won a 6th DCA Percussion Ensemble World Championship title – membrane category.

The competitors demonstrated high standards of drumming excellence. CADRE congratulates the drummers from Chicago Cavaliers and New York Skyliners on their quality performances.

As always, thanks to our friends and family who make the road-to-competition easier and special thanks to the event-sponsors and suppliers who provided support over the past year in so many ways.

CADRE is proud to have won the 2016 DCA World Championship because this victory honours both Canada and the larger community of Canadian Rudimental Drummers.
