Crossmen announced today that Chris Considine is the new Visual Caption Head for 2016. He brings a wealth of teaching experience to the Crossmen, having taught with the Santa Clara Vanguard (2003-2006), Blue Stars (2007), Bluecoats (2008-2011), and most recently with Carolina Crown (2012-2015).
“We are thrilled to have Chris on the Crossmen team, said Program Coordinator Ed Devlin. “He has a wealth of knowledge and passion for the activity that will serve the Crossmen well in years to come.”
Joining Mr. Considine are some familiar faces, as well as some outstanding new additions to the visual staff:
“We are extremely excited for these new additions to the visual program,” said Executive Director, Fred Morrison. “While changes of any kind are never easy, we truly feel that Chris and his team will help elevate the Crossmen visual program to another tier of performance, this season and beyond!”
Chris started his involvement in the drum and bugle corps activity with Florida Wave and continued as a marching member with the Star of Indiana, aging out in 1991. He brings a wealth of teaching experience to the Crossmen, having taught with the Santa Clara Vanguard (2003-2006), Blue Stars (2007), Bluecoats (2008-2011), and most recently with Carolina Crown (2012-2015).
Along with drum and bugle corps, he has been active with marching bands including Lake Park High School, Bellevue East, and is currently on the staff for Hamilton High School, Kings High School, Milford High School and BOA Grand National finalist William Mason High School.
He counts himself lucky that he has been involved in an activity that has shaped who he is and looks forward to continued growth as an educator at the Crossmen. Chris currently resides in Round Lake Beach, Ilinois.
