From a Pioneer press release:

After weeks of internal discussion, the Pioneer organization has appointed two new drum majors for the 2008 Drum Corps International season.

Jackie Bilder, 18, is a three-year member of the corps. She played soprano horn in the brass section and currently attends Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington, Ill. where she majors in music and art.

Brian Wilson, 20, also is a three-year Pioneer member of the mellophone section. He attends Indiana State University in Terre Haute where he is working toward a degree in music education.

Bilder and Wilson will replace "age-out" Pioneer member Alex Wilga, who served as the corps' drum major from 2005-2007.
