From a Dutch Boy press release: Things are progressing well in Kitchener/Waterloo Ontario for Dutch Boy. The corps has been hard at work on their 2004 production, "Weathering the Seasons." We have weekly Saturday rehearsals and have just completed our fifth camp where we ensembled six minutes of the summer show.
The corps recently purchased new Kanstal B Flat horns thanks to a grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation. Dutch Boy made its 2004 debut on Feb. 14 at the Canadian Classic winter guard show. The corps peformed the first two movements of the show in a standstill performance. We are currently marching four snares, two tenors and four bass drums. We have 18 brass and would like to fill the line out to 24. Our front ensemble has seven members and is looking for two more. Our color guard is fielding 14. At this point, the corps is planning a full DCI division II/III tour. Check the corps Web site for contact information.
