Sunday Cadets2 Camp Update: Work Progresses on 'Launch'

Still Searching for Final Few Brass, Mallet Positions

Cadets2 members and staff are working hard on the first full camp of 2012, as they dig into the full musical book for the program "launch." Camp continues throughout the day Sunday, February 12 at South Mountain Middle School at 709 West Emmaus Ave. in Allentown, PA until 2PM.

Cadets2 Corps Director, Eric Kitchenman says, “The staff and members are 'locked on,' and short of a few brass player we were expecting to attend camp, the rehearsal is going along at the pitch and intensity we needed to move the program forward. We rehearsed until midnight Saturday and were back at it Sunday at 8AM."

Kitchenman went on to say that while the additional recruiting has been paying off with more new members at each camp. “We are still looking for a final few brass players: trumpets, baritones and tubas to be precise. The numbers are crucial to how we put the program together and with the drill design process which will begin very shortly once our numbers are finalized.”

Rich Hammond, program coordinator for Cadets2 also added in speaking about the current membership, “Our battery percussion is very deep in talent, but we are looking for a few more mallet players to round out the front percussion ensemble.”

Each member of the corps and staff have been tasked to invite someone they know who plays one of the instruments the corps is searching for, and from the initial positive reaction, the empty positions could be filled soon.

If you are interested in performing as a member of Cadets2, please RSVP to Melissa at or by phone at 610.821.0345 ext 115.
