Crossmen Tour 37 "renewal" Day 37-Angelo State University, Clinic and Rehearsal Day-San Angelo, TX
Crossmen Tour 37 "renewal" Day 37
Sunday, July 24th- Angelo State University, San Angelo, TX- ASU Band Clinic and Rehearsal Day
Hot and dry is name of today. We are being hosted at the incredible facilities at Angelo State University in San Angelo, TX. We have been nurturing a new relationship with the university band program since January. Scheduling a rehearsal day that could coincide with band camps at the university presented a challenge during our very aggressive 2011 Tour. We are very happy to have the opportunity to help each other grow our perspective programs. The university benefits by exposing their camp attendees to instruction by our world class teachers and the Crossmen benefit by the focus and recruiting possiblilities in our home state. These type of win win scenarios are one of our strategies for sustaining our corps today and into the future.
During the day, the ASU percussion focused camp attendees received instruction from the Crossmen percussion staff. Andria Foerch took the regns for the Color Guard portion of the camp instruction. The drum major attendees received attention from Crossmen Drum Majors, Justin and Joey during a question and answer period. Kara Alvarez-Calderon, DCI Jim Jones award recipient and Contempo Leadership proprietor, took the controls for the drum major portion of the camp instruction.
This evening we had all of the camp attendees and the San Angelo residents that were enticed to come to the ensemble rehearsal by an article in the local paper. The university music faculty also produced a poster that was displayed around town and distributed to local schools. The audience was very enthusiastic. Crossmen front ensemble member, Santos, had a large chunk of his family present. They held signs up giving the Crossmen their first ever perfect score of 100+ after our run through! This was a fun night for the corps.
After the performanc,e the EPL dance begins and the fleet is prepared for the next leg of our journey. We are circling back to the site if our first night on the road and our housing at Southlake Carroll HS! "Giddy up Go Crossmen!," as Newell, our food truck driver sayson the two way radio at each departure!
