Andrew Angle July 18, 1977 – January 31, 2021
Andrew Angle – a huge personality in the Minnesota Marching Band community and longtime Minnesota Brass Visual Caption Head passed away unexpectedly over the weekend. He is survived by his wife Jessica, whom he met in MBI. Andrew was known as a passionate contributor to the marching arts community both nationally and in Minnesota as a teacher, designer, judge, and clinician.
Andrew had a huge impact on the visual program at MBI during his time with the corps. He was a meticulously driven teacher who pushed members to perform beyond where they thought that they could. In addition to his high school and DCI instruction, Andrew was instrumental in bringing the Minnesota Brass visual program to the upper echelon of the All-Age drum and bugle corps activity from 2008-2014. Andrew was a large contributor for the designs of the corps in that era as well and brought a higher level of accountability to the design team.
Andrew’s passion and commitment to excellence were well known, but he was also known for his sense of humor and gregarious personality that was very motivational for the Corps during his tenure. Andrew had a larger than life demeanor that carried him through everywhere that he worked. His impact at MBI and on the Minnesota Marching Arts community is immense.
As a professional and as our friend, we will miss Andrew . “For All We Know,”
A wonderful tribute to Andrew. Thank you for your kind words. RIP Andrew.
