Platinum Launches “G Drive”
Platinum Drum Corps announces the start of their Equipment Campaign. The corps is beginning the process of raising $80,000 for the purchase of a new line (60 total) of Kanstul G Bugles. Platinum?s Executive Director Steve McKeiver stated, ?This is a bold move for any corps in the Jr Activity to make, but we are confident that this will fit the mold of what we want Platinum to be known as, and that is a strong, powerful, and entertaining ensemble. We want to give our members a unique experience that you can only find here.?
The move to a full ?G? keyed line will mark the first in a transition back to the more ?grass roots? movement of Drum Corps. ?This is just an exciting point in the history of Drum Corps? McKevier stated, ?there are so many unique and quality programs out there, and we are just extremely happy that we can continue to build on that and offer yet another new and exciting opportunity for members of the Drum Corps Community.?
The move to the new horns will take place with the 2012 season, so this is our last year in the ?B flat? era. We are hoping that through the support of Drum Corps fans, and our own fundraising efforts that we can obtain this goal fairly swiftly. All donations are fully tax deductible, and we will provide you with the necessary documentation for tax purposes.
