Crossmen Marching Music eXtravaganza, Crossmen eXperience Day and the Drum Major eXperience were features of this jam packed day of drum corps hosted by the Crossmen at their spring training site at the Blossom Athletic Center.
The Drum Major eXperience consisted of three days of intense instruction by Contempo Leadership principal, Kara Alvarez-Calderon. Kara has experience at many levels of conducting and leadership including Baylor University, Phantom Regiment, Crossmen and DCI. Kara is also a Jim Jones Leadership Award Recipient for DCI drum major of the year. The majors were treated to a chance to conduct the Crossmen with the Crossmen Drum Major, Justin Hawkins at the conclusion of the DMX along with free admission the Marching Music eXtravaganza.
The Crossmen eXperience attendees received instruction from the Crossmen visual, guard and music staff members. The final treat of the day was the opportunity to show off their newly polished skills on the field with the Crossmen. They then found their way to the stands in order to witness the debut of the 2011 Crossmen production “renewal”.
With over 600 in attendance the corps was well received and reveled in the great reception offered to them by the enthusiastic audience. Saturday we leave for tour!
