From a Capital Regiment press release: Capital Regiment took to the road this past weekend, as the corps traveled to Granville, Ohio, to begin learning drill for its 2005 production "Chiaroscuro."

Denison University's Mitchell Center became the corps home for the day on Saturday, March 19. "This is the third year Capital Regiment has used the facility to begin learning drill," reported Capital Regiment director Rick Bays. "Being able to learn drill in March without the fear of bad weather is quite nice. We had a beautiful weather in Columbus on Friday, but by Saturday it was cold and rainy. Learning drill inside a warm, dry facility sure beats marching through puddles in 40-degree weather any day!" By the end of Saturday's rehearsal, the battery and horn line marched and played through the first part of the opening production. "It is such a valuable experience for the members and the staff to have this first drill experience in March," said program coordinator Wayne Dillon. "When we are able to get outside in April, we get so much more accomplished having already gone through the drill learning process once."

Capital Regiment's next camp will be held from April 22 to April 24. While most all brass and percussion positions have been filled, post-winter guard season auditions for color guard performers will take place at the April camp. For more information visit
