Phillip Gray, Philip Martinez, and Drew Renshaw of Richmond Hill have been selected to join Spirit of Atlanta Drum and Bugle Corps for its 40th anniversary season.
Out of hundreds of young and talented musicians who have auditioned to join the corps for the 2016 season, all ages 15-22, these musicians were selected to be performers for the 2016 edition of Spirit of Atlanta. One hundred and fifty members are chosen each years based on talent, athletic skills, and passion for performing. Above all, they must exhibit the attitude needed to complete a challenging and high-quality artistic program.
Spirit of Atlanta is a member of Drum Corps International, which is a governing body facilitating summer educational events, performances, and competitions. The group will be in more than 20 competitions and exhibitions across the country for an audience of 300,000.
Spirit of Atlanta Director Chris Moore said, "The performing members we have selected are at the top of their game. The character they exude, dedication and hard work will be fine-tuned skills they will carry for the rest of their lives."
