4 Of our members playing with the TOP DRUM CORPS BAND IN AMERICA!
On 4th July 2015, four of our members travelled down to Woking and took part in the Blue Devils Clinic. For those people who don't know who Blue Devils are they are the reigning 16 time Champions in Drum Corps International, and if your in America they are the band to be with you. Bethany, Ruth, Hannah and Freya all managed to get the chance to take part in the workshop that they put on. They went through simple warm ups, breathing exercise and stretches and managed to play the Naval hymn and The Blue Devils signature tune, When a man loves a women. This is what some of the guys had to say ....................
"It was an experience that doesn't come round in many people's lifetimes and the fact that I had the opportunity to take part in something that I had always dreamed about - being in a HUGE brass line - is extraordinary. I will never forget that day" - Blue Devils Clinic 4th July 2015
Ruth Poole - 1st Euphonium
"When we played when a man loves a women with the Blue Devils the hairs of the back of my neck stood tall. It is only something you ever dream of doing when you do Drum Corps. They are the best and I got to play with the best. It a every lasting memory that I will hold for the rest of my life" - Blue Devils Clinic
Bethany Poole - 1st Soprano
We can all tell that this will stop with the girls for a very long time and the Staff and their parents should be very proud of them! They did The Comets proud and we are proud that they represented us at the Clinic! Well done girls!
