The Diamond Cadets, the junior corps of the Blue Diamonds from Nienhagen, have decided to enter the DCE European Championships this year. It will be the first appearance of the German junior corps at DCE.

The mission of the Diamond Cadets at DCE is to enjoy performing at a big Championships event, meeting other junior corps, and simply having a great day with the 40 members. The Blue Diamonds take the education for children very seriously. They have the Diamond Babys, for children starting at the age of 3, the Diamond Minikids, the Diamond Kids and the Diamond Cadets. Last year the Diamond Cadets won the German Open, a contest in the European Music Games series.

"We are proud that we can perform our first show at a big event like this", says corps director Christian Korn. "The youngest member of the Diamond Cadets is six years old and very much looking forward to the big trip." Both the Blue Diamonds and the Diamond Cadets will have their first appearance at the DCE Championships.

The Junior Class at the DCE Championships 2015 now features six corps from three countries: Diamond Cadets (Germany), Johan Friso (The Netherlands), Jong Beatrix (The Netherlands), Jong-Holland Juniors (Netherlands), Jong Jubal (The Netherlands) and Thurrock Marching Brass (United Kingdom).
