This past weekend, many of my acquaintances, along with their clients and proteges, performed in the Drum Corps International (@DCI) championships. I have been out of the loop for some time now, but I must acknowledge that my work now is part of the continuum of my time with both the Blue Devils and the Cadets. Having gotten interested in the activity when I was just too old, I am extremely grateful for the opportunities I have had to work within both organizations at such intimate levels.
I did not witness the extreme spectacles in person, but I did watch through live stream. And, my goodness…the levels of proficiency — levels — are indescribable. Furthermore, and equally important, the ways each group was able to connect with the audience was unlike I have seen before. BRAVO
I have soft spots for both the Blue Devils and the Cadets because of my direct involvement in years past; however, all groups were stellar!
And, congrats to the Vanguard organization for their successes this year!
