This picture is from Kevin Thurston, a 17-year-old drum corps fan and supporter.

This picture is of the Phantom Regiment's brass arc at John McEachern High School in Powder Springs, Ga., on June 23, 2006.

Looking out to see the arc, I noticed that it was facing the sunset, almost as if the beautiful sounds coming from the talented musicians were illuminating the darkened sky. This picture is a true symbol for the light and happiness that music can bring to a sometimes rough world.

Of course, Phantom Regiment had an incredible performance that night, as did every other corps in competition, and the shows indeed put everyone in a happy mood.

Thanks, Kevin!
