  • New headquarters and museum planned: Workers are renovating space in Claypool Court for a new Drum Corps International headquarters and a museum for the Percussive Arts Society. The not-for-profit DCI plans to take about 5,000 square feet, while the museum will take 16,000 square feet. The basement space, below the Weber Grill Restaurant, recently hosted "Bodies: The Exhibition". The new facility is slated to open in the fall.
