Boston Crusaders - Drum & Bugle Corps

Q: What is your role with the Boston Crusaders?

I played mellophone for 3 years and this is my second as one of the drum majors. Of course, I conduct and help keep the show together but my favorite part of the job is the role I get to play off of the field supporting my fellow crusaders.

Q: What was your inspiration to become a Boston Crusader?

After watching the 2011 quarterfinals in the theaters in high school, I knew I wanted to be a Boston crusader. I also had a friend in the corps and the camps happened to be in Florida, so it all worked out!

Q: What does being a Crusader mean to you?

I have an unending love for the organization after all that it has done for me. Being a crusader means to be a part of an accepting group of strangers who take on the task of putting a drum corps show on the field and end as a close family of friends.

Q: What advice would you give to future Crusaders?

Don’t be afraid, you will easily find a home here.

Q: Who inspires you?

My bus driver, Sheldon.
