This week on DCI.org, we'll be focusing some editorial firepower on anecdotes and stories related to front ensembles. Think back to those formative, funny, inspiring or memorable front ensemble stories and send them in! They can be as long or as short as you would like. Attach a picture of yourself or the situation you're writing about if you can. And by all means, pass this on to your pit-lurking friends! We'll edit these stories for clarity, grammar and appropriateness. If you have a pit-related anecdote or story, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Matt Jordan, the Cavaliers' timpanist, sent in a couple quick anecdotes about the pictures below:
(Left) This sign has kind of a long story behind it. One of our pit instructors made jokes all season about an imaginary book, named "Fog Logic." We constantly made up things to make fun of his nickname, and this is one thing that we came up with during a rehearsal. (The brass section is rehearsing behind me, by the way) (Right) This is a little tradition the pit has had for many years. Before every show, we will huddle up, and talk about the show and other things, to get us hyped up to have a smokin' run!
