A marching band is fun to watch and listen to. The cadence of the drum line, the high, bold sound of the trumpets, the deep bass of the sousaphones, and the piping of the piccolo. Instrumentalists move from set to set, sometimes creating complex formations. But what brings it all together visually? The color guard.
The Marching Eagle color guard is led and directed by Mary Brunton. After practicing with our potential team on Friday, Mary said, "I'm excited about this season! The Colorguard is working hard and has already learned so much. Colorguard provides a great form of creative expression combining the use of equipment for visual effect and the music. One of my goals is for that to come across in our performances this season."
There are three more practices before color guard auditions. It looks like this will be a beautiful marching season.
