  7. We were not performing art majors. We may have learned to play an instrument in elementary and junior high school. But, we caught the drum corps bug. We wanted to march with a corps in a parade or M&M drill. We love the music and the corps spirit. For all except the major corps, we didn't have to try out for. All we had to do was try hard. As a member of a corps you grew with the corps. You practiced and rehearsed. I like the line from the movie "Drumline". One band on sound". When one sounds bad you all sound bad. There was nothing like it. And for most of the kids today it has disappeared. Corps used to sound like the Roman legion entering a city. Now they sound like a Broadway musical. We use to march. Now they dance. So now a days you need to be a music major or dance major to get a spot in a big name corp. Look around at what we lost. Thousands of corps small and big have disappeared. Only to be replace by performing art groups.

  11. The Skyliners Drum & Bugle Corps' Open House this past Saturday was a tremendous success, and an exciting beginning for the corps' 2017 competitive season. Shane Startzel, Brass Caption Head, assisted by Joe Wilt, Assistant Brass Caption Head, led the brass instruction, supported by 2017 Brass Staff. After warm-ups, the horn line worked through the "Lost Boy" Ballad and the beginning of "Escape from Paradise" from The Skyliners' 2017 show "XSCAPE". Front and center was the inaugural use of B Flat System Blue brass by The Skyliners, which caused great excitement and anticipation. Brass Arranger John Meehan sent a special video greeting for Open House attendees. Percussion Caption Head Patsy Vankirk, Front Ensemble Coordinator Dr. Rick Wolfel, and the Percussion staff, led the Percussion through battery and front ensemble warm-ups. The talent level of the ensemble and the incredible interest will no doubt be a driving force for The Skyliners in 2017, and raise the bar even further than 2016. The Color Guard members in attendance were led by Brenda Peregrim, Color Guard Caption Head, James Branch, one of The Skyliners' Color Guard Designers and staff through stretching, movement, and flag and weapon work. At the end of the day, the guard members performed their routines for fellow corps members, giving the corps a taste of what to expect from this talented group of performers and designers. Jeff Crawford, Visual Caption Head and the 2017 Visual Staff introduced the Visual program to the attendees, working on ensemble and individual elements. A PT session introduced some of the exercises that members will focus on throughout the year, and a structure to an overall fitness program that will help develop and improve skills, fitness and endurance. The Skyliners thank everyone who attended today, everyone who helped set up, served lunch, cleaned up for the Open House, or helped in many ways to make it such a success.
