Ron Ghetti Musical Tribute
Ron “Rocky” Ghetti was a Drum Corps icon in the Troy, NY area; active with the Interstatesmen and countless junior corps in this area. He was an inspiration to an unknowable number of young people whom he taught throughout the years.
The Van Schaick Island Neighborhood Watch (of which Ron was the President) will dedicate the Ghetti Gazebo on Tuesday evening, August 1st, at 5:30pm on Van Schaick Island (Cohoes, NY).
The “Friends of Ron Ghetti" committee has organized a brass ensemble to perform in honor of Ron at this dedication. Thus far, members of six active corps have joined on for this project, including current members of the Skyliners, Skyliners Alumni Corps, Crusaders, Retrosound, 20th Century Limited and Capital Brass.
Rehearsals will be held on Wednesdays in July, beginning 7/12; from 6-8:30 pm at the Verdoy Fire Dept, in Latham, NY.
Players interested in participating, should contact the committee in advance of the July rehearsals to make arrangements and to get parts, details and directions.
