Carmenates Steps Away As Boston Crusaders Percussion Caption Head
It is with deep regret that the Boston Crusaders have accepted the resignation of Percussion Caption Head and Arranger Dr. Omar Carmenates. Omar began his time with the Boston Crusaders as a member of the corps from 2001-2002 and for seven seasons has served in various capacities including tenor technician, battery coordinator, percussion caption head, and percussion arranger.
Commenting on his departure, Carmenates said, ?For ten seasons the Boston Crusaders have been an integral part of my life. Through an engagement, a wedding, three college degrees, two children, and a full-time job at a prestigious university, the corps has been alongside me supporting my every move. It is with a heavy heart that I have chosen to step back from the organization. The time has come for me to devote myself to my loving wife and children and to focus on my own professional development and teaching duties at Furman University. While my day-to-day involvement with the corps has come to an end, I will always be a part of the Crusader family and look forward to being a fan for many years to come!
