Days 201-202: Mini Vacation!

This week I traveled to Broken Arrow, OK to a Drum Corp International show with my parents, my high school band director, and his wife. If you’ve never heard of it, DCI is like a big marching band competition with some of the best brass, percussion, and color guard performers in the country. These kids, just 14-21 years old, work their tails off day-in and day-out all summer long, rehearsing in the heat of the day, sleeping on gym floors, and performing in hot uniforms each night. They certainly have my utmost admiration and respect. If there’s ever a DCI show in your city, GO – you’ll love it, even if you aren’t a musician yourself!

The Cavaliers entertain the crowd when a few of the performers play their instruments upside down.
We stayed at a beautiful Bed & Breakfast in Broken Arrow, which had a gorgeous deck overlooking this peaceful pond.

    I didn’t know you went to Broken Arrow? We were there too, a friend of mine is on staff for Music City Drum Corps. The Cavs show was pretty amazing. Dr. Fuchs was there too, he was a few rows in front of us.
