Rasheed Moore
Give us your full drum corps/marching music background. I marched in high school marching band for four years, and I started my drum corps life with Capital Regiment in 2003, and I joined the Glassmen in 2004, where I have been ever since. What's your practice schedule like? I'm a music major, so I practice everyday for two or three hours (now three or four hours) so I can work on drum corps music. What does your ideal free day consist of? Just a day off is fine with me, we don't really have to go anywhere. A barbecue restaurant would be fine. Favorite pig-out food: Synder's Bar-BQ chips In the shower you can hear me singing: Parts of drum corps shows. The last good book I read: Umm, I don't remember. The last great film I saw: I got to go see a free screening of "King Kong" a few weeks ago. Jobs I have/have had: I have been working at Target for a few years now. My favorite TV show: "CSI," all of them. What has been your formative drum corps moment? 2004 Allentown, in the rain. What would you be doing next summer if you were not marching? Working. How did you decide to be a member of your corps? I have always loved the Glassmen and always wanted to march with them. I went to Capital Regiment so that I could get used to the whole thing first, and then I tried out with the Glassmen and I got in. What first attracted you to the drum corps activity? I like loud things and I love music. I have also always wanted to play music for people. What advice would you give to young people who want to march? Just try out even if you don't think you are good enough, just try out. Most corps will tell you want you need to fix and even may help you find another corps that is right for you. What I want to be when I "grow up": A conductor of a major orchestra. Best drum corps show ever and why: Cadets 1993. I don't know why but I love that show. The year is 2030. What does a DCI show look like? I don't know. Drum corps has changed so much since I was introduced to it, and I have no idea where it will go from there, but I'm sure it will be wonderful.
