Remembering Frank Pasquarella - original Bluecoats Autumn Leaves soloist

Recommended Posts

We lost a great friend of the marching arts this past summer - Frank Pasquarella passed away August 7, 2020.

Frank Pasquerella marched the Bluecoats Drum & Bugle Corps in the 80s, and left a lasting legacy in many ways. Perhaps most poignant, Frank will forever be remembered as the original Autumn Leaves soprano soloist, a position that now holds the highest of honors among the hornline. Following that original performance of Autumn Leaves featuring Frank, the song has now become the official Corps Song of the organization. Frank marched with the Bluecoats in 1982, 84-88.

Frank marched with Phantom Regiment during the 83 season. He was also on staff with Phantom 92-94 where he met his wife Maria.  

Frank was a music educator and an advocate of the arts. He was truly loved as a member of the music department at Eastview High School in Apple Valley MN.
