Listening to: Nessun Dorma
Thought for the day: One may go a long way after one is tired. ~French Proverb
Notice the plethora of water coolers. It was HOT today and these young musicians were working their asses off at the height of the sun’s moments of torment. Today’s photo is a section of the Phantom Regiment Drum and Bugle Corps from Illinois during their rehearsal prior to tonight’s Master of Summer Music Games held at Middle Tennessee State University. Phantom Regiment was one of 8 corps competing in tonight’s competition. They placed third. A corps consists of young musicians ranging from12 to 21 years of age. The sound these kids produce is indescribable…………..chocolate for the ears. I had goosebumps on goosebumps listening to this rehearsal. I can honestly say I’ve never had goosebumps in 100 degree heat until today.
