From the CORPS DIRECTOR Denise Bonfiglio in her update email sent on 12/30 to corps donors, members and volunteers entitled “quick Cadets Update:

quote: “- We took delivery of an entirely new set of Yamaha brass instruments for the first time in several years. The performers and staff are excited beyond belief to bring the 2020 production to life. A complete set of Yamaha front ensemble instruments are on their way and will be onsite for our next camp!”
 

She conveniently left out where the horns came from.

They may be "NEW" as in, for the Cadets. Are they "NEVER" used "NEW" from the factory???

Hey guys. I usually stay clear of this stuff and I appreciate those of you that understand my position. I'm basically going to tell you what has already been said on here. There are some smart pe

I have a high school senior who auditioned for the corps.  He got a callback (woo!) but did not get a spot... too young and inexperienced, but they liked him and said they'd give his name to some othe

I'm curious what you thought her definition of "new" is. If the director states that they're new, it's pretty safe to say that they came from the factory. Even as an educator, when my program gets new equipment from the factory I call it new, however, if we receive used equipment as a donation, I wouldn't refer to it as new, nor would I assume that she was referring to used equipment. Hence, the reason I am asking what you assumed she was implying by using the word "new."

Either The Cadets are in dire financial straights ready to go bankrupt or they’re doing just fine.  It all depends on who you talk to on any given day and who you believe. I hear something different weekly.

...or The Cadets (the kids and the instructors) are showing promise, but behind the scenes, YEA (the parent company) is a train wreck. Both can exist at the same time.

A very generous individual purchased a set of horns out of their own pocket and is lending them to the Cadets for the summer. Yes really

That's awesome. Now the compensating euphonium doesn't seem so expensive. Maybe I should.....
