Ignite Your Passion At Home

Mt. Juliet, TN - May, 2020 | | Artists | community | Events | Marching

With the cancellation of WGI, DCI and the fall marching band season in question, our community of passionate fans, participants and sponsors are feeling the void by being unable to witness and participate in these amazing performances. This can create barriers for players at all skill levels from having access to playing on marching instruments. We at Mapex are excited to expand the Stay at Home, Learn at Home, Play at Home campaign to marching percussionists.
