The Academy Alumni Association 2017 April RE(cap)

Happy April!

This past weekend was a very productive camp for the brass section as they worked with members of the design team!  They focused on music with Michael Klesch and worked on drill and movement with Jaime Holly and Chris Velez.  These members and staff are working hard to put a great production on the field for 2017!

This past weekend was also the final competitive performance for 2017 The Academy Winter Youth Guard.  They performed their show “Slow Down” and earned a record high score for the team!  Be sure to look for these hard working kids in The Academy Summer Youth Guard!

Meet the Academy

The Academy hosts this annual donation event to bring in support for our organization and introduce people to the drum corps world.  This year’s event will take place on Saturday, April 29, at Campo Verde High School.  We are still looking for a few more alumni volunteers to act as tour guides for this event.  Last year, the volunteers heard the first official announcement of the show, saw the unveiling of the guard uniforms, and listened to a full run through of the show music.  We hope you can join us for the 2017 event!

Memorial Day

This event will take place on Monday, May 29th, from 12pm-3pm.  Tickets cost $5 and include a picnic lunch.  You will have the chance to see PHENOM, The Academy Winter Youth Guard, and each section of the drum corps, as well as a performance of the 2017 Academy music production.  We hope to see you there!
