Connecticut Hurricanes Announce New Drum Majors For 2017

| |

The Connecticut Hurricanes are extremely pleased to announce their new Drum Majors for the upcoming 2017 DCA competition season. Both of these individuals have a great deal of musical experience and leadership skills and will be a perfect fit to lead the corps.

Matthew Piros, age twenty-seven, will be the Head Drum Major for the Hurricanes and is entering his fifth year with the corps. Matt played euphonium for two years and mellophone for the past two seasons with the Hurricanes. He is currently an elementary school music teacher in Andover, Connecticut. Matt has attended Trinity College, University of New Haven, and currently the University of Connecticut as he continues his education. His goal is to become an elementary school principal and has been taking tests to reach that goal. Matt joined the Hurricanes because it was an avenue for him to play music at the highest level. Since this will be his first year on the podium, his wish is for the corps to be the best they can and to succeed. He has a great personality that will easily connect with the fans. Matt knows that replacing the VERY popular Brian Maroldt may be hard at first but he is confident that he will get the job done. Brian Maroldt has taken over the duties of Corps Director this season and we wish him nothing but success in his new role. Most recently, Matt became engaged to Miss Leah LePere, a trumpet player in the Hurricanes horn line. When not doing drum corps, Matt loves to cycle and enjoys reading good books.
