Skyliners To Go Inactive, Field Mini-Corps
The New York Skyliners have announced that they will not field a competitive corps this summer, but will compete as a Mini-Corps at DCA Championships over Labor Day Weekend.
The N.Y. Skyliners invite anyone who is interested in performing with the N. Y. Skyliners’ Mini-Corps (brass with a small drumline/drum set player) to send an email to Harry Eldridge, Sr. at skydirector07 [at] verizon [dot] net by July 1st. The email should contain your name, phone/cell number, email address, and information about what instrument you play (for example, Soprano 1, Mellophone 2, etc.) Please include alternates is appropriate (such as Soprano 1/Mellophone 1, for example.) Once the line is set, you will receive music and midi files from the N.Y. Skyliners, and we will be in touch.
Rehearsals for the mini-corps start on Sunday, July 8th. They will be held every other Sunday in July and every Sunday in August. The rehearsal dates are July 8th and 22nd; August 5th, 12th, 19th, and 26th from 10:00am until 4:00pm at the Dover American Legion Post #27, 2 Legion PLace in Dover, NJ. Currently the plan is to compete at the mini-corps competition on Friday, August 31st in Rochester, NY. However, the mini-corps may accept offers to perform in August prior to Finals weekend. This will depend upon members’ schedules.
For those who considered coming down to the Skyliners, who were on the fence, or who are still looking for a competitive, entertaining, and fun DCA experience – check your calendar! Contact us ASAP, spend a few Sundays playing with us, and join the N. Y. Skyliners Mini-Corps as they take the stage in Rochester!
