The last rehearsal day of the year was fun-house full of focus as the corps continued to clean every last beat of Mad Circus. Today’s long block at Badgerow Park gave plenty of time for everyone to work on achieving a new level of performance as the corps prepares for tomorrow evening’s Semi-Finals competition at the DCA World Championships.
This evening members of our administrative team gathered to celebrate the induction of Gavin Burnham, our president and CEO into the World Drum Corps Hall of Fame. Gavin has been in a leadership role with the corps for more than 25 years and his talents have helped Minnesota Brass achieve remarkable success. The evening provided a wonderful opportunity to celebrate Gavin’s work and the achievements of several other inductees who have each contributed to the drum corps community.
The evening ended with the Mini Corps competition and our very own Minne-Brass who placed fourth with a score of 91.5 in tonight’s competition. Their program, featuring music of the Hornheads, was a stellar display of talent arranged by Minne-Brass director (and Minnesota Brass board chair) Todd Tanji. Congratulations to Minne-Brass on another outstanding performance!
Tomorrow, the drum corps will rehearse from 9-2 at Badgerow Park North. We will then head back to our hotel to freshen up a bit in preparation for tomorrow’s preliminary performance. The corps takes the field at Sahlen’s Stadium at 7:38. For the latest, keep following us on facebook and twitter. #mbi15
