Red championed "classical" music in Drum Corps. His scoring of the Verdi "Requiem" for the Reading Bucs set new standards, and inspired all of us who had aspirations to arrange for brass. We are forever in his debt for that and so many other brilliant musical moments.

One of the greatest shows and hornline in DCA history with a killer drum line taught by Flowers IIRC.  What I remember about 74 was the corp beating Cabs in Hershey and being booed off the field.

That was the first show I ever saw! My parents, sister and I went and had to sit on the back side as concert side was sold out. 

Yep booing and blizzard of thrown programs is what I remember. And sitting on the other side got a real good look 😳

And i forgot to mention that was Red's hornline.  I'll never forget Richie playing the solo in Requiem one of Red's greatest orchestration
