The Phantom Regiment Drum and Bugle Corps will hold its summer camp at Western Illinois University this year.  The group of 150 high school and college aged musicians plus 50 staff members will be on campus for three weeks as they rehearse for their summer tour around the country.

Only around 200 institutions in the world can boast of being an All Steinway School. The School of Music at Western Illinois University intends to join that select group.
