The Glassmen will unfortunately join the ranks of corps that have performers “under the weather” tonight, as some members were recently diagnosed with an upper respiratory illness.

The Mandarins also had to miss a show yesterday in Monroe, La., because of illness, and they were preceded by Carolina Crown, who missed out on the Ft.
