CorpsIMPACT 2003

While the rest of the corps was tearing it up at the Loud Music Symposium, CorpsImpact was on the road in Orlando. Although we missed being with the full corps, we had three great performances. Mambo was used to open the show, followed by In the Stone. Our second performance was a moving rendition of America the Beautiful to introduce the keynote speech by Mayor Rudy Giuliani. We finished the show with a parade of In the Stone, which led the audience out the door.We think this marks the first time a drum corps has performed on two coasts at once.

This was a tough gig - long hours of rehearsal and three performances during the day. But through it all, Christian Minervini looks great!

Happy Rich

Rich enjoys a sugar high from the plethora of delicious General Mills products that were left in our ready room. Later, we found out that they were intended for a skit during the opening ceremonies! Opps.
