Sunday: Putting it all together

The Cadets wrap up camp No. 3

The Cadets woke up at 7:30 Sunday morning for breakfast, and the members have been talking about how great the food has been, from the pulled pork sandwiches Saturday at lunch, to the Mexican lasagna for dinner, to the breakfast casseroles Sunday morning. Thanks to all the volunteers for putting together great meals all weekend!

After breakfast, the corps moved to the gym for another stretch and PT session; then the brass and percussion parted ways for the last sectional block of this camp. The drum line was fortunate to have 15 new snare players audition this weekend for just two remaining spots. Gino also gave out a few mellophone spots this afternoon, though there are still a few more mellophone and tuba spots open.

The corps is still looking for four mellophones and four tubas to round out the full 80-member hornline.  If you're interested, please contact Melissa Barlow at Melissa@YEA.org or at 610-821-0345 ext. 115.

At 1 p.m., the Corps gathered in front of a small crowd in the gym for “show and tell,” where the front ensemble pieced together “Do You Hear What I Hear?” with the brass. Then the drums and brass worked through the second part of “Carol of the Bells.”

After a brief meeting at 2 p.m., everyone turned in their instruments and cleaned up the school. This is the first camp that some brass players can check out instruments and take them home to practice between camps.

The bus pulled out on time at 3 p.m., and another camp is in the books.

(A personal shout-out: I’d like to say a special congratulations to Nicholas Watkins, my little, 6’4” brother who became a Cadet mellophone today!)
