If anyone's headed out to O'Fallon this weekend, I'll be there judging the visual caption for the percussion competition.
A couple other pieces of pageantry-related news:
— The Troopers Drum and Bugle Corps is still actively seeking tuba players.
—Looking for a Marching Band related gig? Besides the usual word of mouth and networking ways, you can also check out Indeed.com, LotHype.com, Marching.com, and bandjobs.org. And if you know of a position open somewhere, feel free to let me know and I'll list it on a future article. I'm good that way.
— In case you missed last week's listing of the Contemporary Color theatre release dates, beginning March 17, you can catch it in Los Angeles (CA) at the NoHo 7 or in Phoenix (AZ) at FilmBar.
If you're out this weekend, may the shows be ever in your favor. Happy twirls, diddles, and runs.
