|The Green Hope Drumline|
|Support the Arts: Kiss a Drummer
out of Green Hope High in Cary, NC, we're definitly the best section in the best band, with some absolutely KILLER instruction from David Wilson, Aaron Tucker and Andrew Hummer(patron saint of the new picture on this page)..., and our fearless leaders liz, cashin, peter, steph.
So the lines set, and, for the record, we have an inordinate amount of talent joining us. sectional and full line meeting information will be posted here when it arrives. Congrats to all, wot wot wot.
7/17-7/18: Leadership Retreat (poor, ambitious fools... they'll soon learn.)
7/19-7/23: 8-8 (to 5 on the 23rd) home band camp
7/25-7/29: Band Camp at Lenoir-Rhyne
ill have more on band camp, auditions, and the general lowdown on how the DL works (for the newbies) when i feel like it. till then, dont panic.
Pianissimo: a chance for one of the lesser known/learned players to have an unscheduled solo
Crescendo: a reminder that people have been playing to loud
Conductor: someone who can follow multiple performers at once
Half Step-: what a non-snare drummer or tuba player uses when carrying his loaded case
Beat: what most drummers feel compelled to do to any non drummer. up beat is on the head, down beat is under the chin
Cadence: a chance for the other marchers to rest and drink while the one carrying 2 to 5 times as heavy instruments play on
Music: complex organization of sound thats set down by composer, misinterpreted by conductor, who is ignored by musicians, who are then ignored by the audience
|Joe: Traffic Jam = "I wanna ---- you like an animal!"|

Now, we here at GHDL try and be as forgiving as possible. However, Einstein, with the above remark, has proven that he is a Big Poopy Head. So there.
|The DL Graveyard: a tribute to our fallen warriors "Liz, i just want you to know... if we dont survive tonight, its been an privelege to serve under you, and we die with honor." "sure thing."
