Inside the Circle with Carolina Crown

The Music for All Summer Symposium provides many amazing opportunities for students. One of these experiences is definitely found in the Marching Band Division. The Marching Band students had the unique opportunity to rehearse and perform with Carolina Crown Drum and Bugle Corps at the DCI Central Indiana show. They also will be playing the national anthem at the start of the show tonight.
 
Yesterday, the Marching Division had the chance to have a clinic with Crown where they experienced what most marching band division students would say was "one of the coolest things ever." The students actually got to sit inside the Carolina Crown horn line circle.

We have heard from so many different students, that hearing the horn line like that is simply incredible (and dare we say, possibly life-changing!)

The students also had the chance to interact with Carolina Crown members and were even instructed by Matt Harloff, Brass Caption Head of Carolina Crown, to take 30 seconds to "take a selfie" with Crown members!

Even better than all of that, the script was flipped, and the students played for members of Carolina Crown who were then sitting inside the circle of Marching Band Division members!

Yesterday was definitely an incredible experience for these students and we know tonight's performance in front of a full crowd at the DCI Central Indiana show will also be a moment these students will never forget.
