  2. Posted today on Inspire Arts and Music's (Boston Crusaders parent organization) Facebook page Earlier this week, Inspire Arts & Music visited Boston Prep in Hyde Park to introduce our new after school music program! Through this new partnership, hundreds of local high school students will have the opportunity to take private and group music lessons for free with the Inspire Arts instructors! We can't wait for lessons to begin later this semester and to hear what these students will create!
  3. Sending positive thoughts to your sister, you & your family, and the medical team who is caring for her.
  4. You won't need tickets when your son makes the BAC. I heard you're volunteering to do 6 weeks of tour. 😛
  5. Inspire Arts and Music, parent of the Boston Crusaders, forms a partnership with New England Scholastic Band Association (NESBA). Effective immediately, the New England Scholastic Band Association (NESBA) and Inspire Arts & Music (IAM) have entered into a partnership where IAM will serve as the exclusive Administrative Partner of NESBA. In this partnership, NESBA will tap IAM’s administrative resources to improve user experience for participating ensembles and build long term sustainability. IAM will work alongside the NESBA Board of Directors and key administrators to install operational systems, streamline processes, improve efficiency, and upgrade marketing capacity, to create a better experience for band/guard directors and booster organizations. By boosting participation, sponsorships, and revenue, NESBA and IAM seek to increase participation and brand awareness with the goal to host larger events and secure larger venues. IAM will work to increase NESBA participation across the outdoor and indoor offerings, grow all NESBA events including outdoor and indoor championships, and look to create marquee events in great venues with top level adjudicators........... ............Both IAM and NESBA share similar missions. IAM currently operates the largest scholastic festival company in New England through Great East Music Festivals and Fantastic Festivals. These companies serve over 625 middle and high school concert bands, jazz bands, and choirs with enriching performance opportunities through 60 different competitive festivals each spring. Likewise, NESBA serves the finest marching bands, color guard, and percussion ensembles in New England with adjudicated indoor and outdoor performance series. Both organizations strive to provide a safe and educational atmosphere which fosters creativity, diversity, growth and achievement with long term sustainability. https://inspirearts.org/2022/09/nesba-and-iam/

  10. When your son marches in Gino's line next year, I'll point you in the direction for the best block of tickets. 😉
  11. If either of those things happen, can I have your blast zone seats? hahahahahahahahaha
  12. I'm not disagreeing/disputing that. Just wanted to highlight the major cost increase for the '23 season.
  13. It's causing several of us to reconsider continuing in the group for next season for sure.
  14. For the 2023 season the cost has increased substantially. In prior seasons your FDCI donation got you x number of seats plus the option to purchase an additional x number of seats. Example - for a $2500. donation level you get 6 seats; plus the option to purchase an additional 4 seats at list price $350 each. Total cost for 10 seats 3900 or 390 per person. For the 2023 season your FDCI donation gets you the right to purchase those same x number of seats. Example - for a $2500. donation you can purchase 10 tickets at list price of $375 each. Total cost for 10 seats 6250 or 625 per person While I'm sure of the payment structure change, I'm not sure of the exact figures. I know these are fairly close because I'm part of a group who have been getting "Friends" tickets for at least 10 years.
  15. They were located downtown 110 W Washington St. (about 4 or 5 blocks from LOS) up until about 6 years ago.
  16. Congratulations to BD Nation your championship, from a long time member of Crusader Nation. Enjoy the off season.
  17. This Boston fan wanted to congratulate the Blue Devils!!! It's been a helluva fun ride.
  18. Thanks so much for all the work you've done to bring this to us this season. It's been appreciated very much!! Sending you all sorts of positive healing thoughts as you deal with your health situation. Looking forward to seeing you back on the DCP pages soon!
  19. Just tell her you'll leave the check book and plastic with her to use as she pleases, if she lets you go.🤣
