Brotherly love

Here's a photo I was able to take with my brother at this year's Open Class Finals after the Vanguard Cadets were announced as the Open Class champions. My brother plays snare drum in the Vanguard Cadets and I'm the front ensemble instructor/arranger for Impulse, so there was a bit of sibling rivalry during the season, but it was all in good fun. Seeing all the World Class groups live during the Finals was amazing, but this was definitely the highlight of my tour because I was able to witness my brother at one of the highest points in his musical career with his other buddies in the corps and the staff. This is one day I will never forget.
