From a Carolina Crown press release: In keeping with the corps progressive development of the most recent years, it is with excitement and pleasure that Carolina Crown announces the corps' percussion faculty for 2007.
"With the earlier announcement of Lee Beddis (arranger/caption supervisor) joining the corps design team, we can now name the complete percussion faculty," said Crown program coordinator Jim Coates. "Our goal entering into 2007 is to enhance, elevate and solidify the experience of the percussion section in terms of both education and performance. With having Beddis handling the day to day management of the section, we have been able to secure a well educated and experienced tech faculty that can bring the renewed commitment of excitement and aggressive style of playing."
