I don't know what a mellophone is

by Christina Mavroudis

Bob Luther was prompted several years ago by his high school band director to join Southwind when a lead mellophone spot needed to be filled. Luther, now 19-years-old, went from not even knowing what a mellophone was before joining the corps in his first year, to this summer participating in his fifth year as a long-time drum corps veteran. Listen to how he got to where he is today in this audio interview. This interview is from July 15 and followed Southwind's performance at the DCI Battle Creek major event in Battle Creek, Mich. More interviews like this one are available exclusively to members of the DCI Season Pass. Learn more about becoming a Season Pass member.
