Blue Devil Euphonium Player In Hospital

| |

Blue Devil Euphonium player Joseph Ricard had a deformation of an artery in his brain since birth that suddenly burst while the Blue Devils ‘A’ Corps was in Landisville, Pennsylvania Wednesday night July 30. The pressure from the resulting clot pushing against the bottom of his brain was relieved by surgery. It may be 3 days or more before we know if he will have any lasting effects.

Joe is in his first year with The Blue Devil ‘A’ Corps and marched the ‘B’ Corps in 2004, 2005, 2006 & 2007. He graduated from De La Salle High School this summer and will be going to the Berklee College of Music.
