we need to have a chat.

thiscorpsofbrothers:

here, have a seat. can i get you something to drink?

no?

okay.

now, drum corps folks of tumblr, as I’m sure you know, I’m a member of the Madison Scouts drum and bugle corps. the second oldest in the activity, yadda yadda all dudes blah blah blah green pants band etc.

next year, we’re playing some kickass music with some kickass trumpet parts, the music of don ellis and stan kenton. one of the key parts of such a production is the lead trumpet, or “screamer”, something the Madison Scouts have been known for in our storied history.

now, the part where you come in. 

There are men out there who can play lead trumpet. i know there are. I know you know someone who can. 

The Madison Scouts want them/you. 

They’re offering scholarships, literally free money,to people selected on the basis of their lead trumpet abilities determined through an audition.

Now, they haven’t said publicly how much, but I’ve heard somewhere in the ballpark of half-tuition…

If you’re one of those people who’s always talked about how you’d love to march but don’t have the money, and can play lead?

now. is. the. time.

join or die. put up or shut up. if you’re not first (trumpet) you’re last.

tell your friends.
