The Glassmen color guard goes through five costume changes during the corps' program, "Beethoven: Mastery and Madness." Color guard caption head, Tim Newburn, discusses the mastery and madness behind this feat and explains how guard members have worked to develop individual character personas, training as actors in addition to color guard members, to put a unique touch on the performance. Listen to the audio interview.
