Growing Up Crown: The Age-Outs – Eric Roundy
The toughest decision Carolina Crown pit member Eric Roundy had to make in 2013 was whether or not to march. He was financially unable to make the commitment and had to take a year away from Crown. This decision turned out for the best and Eric traveled to Europe for the performance of his life.
Eric is a marimba player in the Crown pit and will be aging out in 2014 after six years of drum corps. “I am very excited to be a part of the 2014 Carolina Crown for my 6th and final season of Drum Corps,” said the Tennessee Tech University student. He ended up performing in 2013 in the Universal Marimba Competition held in Sint-Truiden Belgium. “Also, in 2014 I was a finalist in the Nashville Philharmonic Concerto Competition and a 1st place winner of the American Protege International Concerto Competition where I have been asked to perform a recital at Carnegie Hall in May.”
