Capital Sound Names 2007 Visual Designer
It is with great excitement that Capital Sound announces the selection of Ryan Turner as visual designer for the 2007 season. Turner brings with him nearly 20 years of design experience, along with a solid history in the marching activity.
Best known as “the voice of Southern California,” for his announcing at numerous band and drum corps shows, Turner, a native of Orange County, currently designs for some of the top band programs in California, Arizona, Florida, Nevada and Texas.
“Ryan is, in my opinion, one of the best designers in the marching world,” said corps director, Marc Gofstein. “He knows what works, and he’s extremely creative. Those are two strengths I look for in a designer, and he’s definitely strong at both.”
Along with drill design, Turner also serves as a visual adjudicator for the Southern California School Band and Orchestra Association, one of the nation’s largest high school band organizations, and has also adjudicated shows across the country. He marched in the 1980s with the Velvet Knights, and served as drum major during the ’86 & ’87 seasons.
