CSC’s Eagle Drumline is looking for new members and invites interested students, even those not in the music department, to a informational meet and greet at 4 p.m., Friday, in Room 104, Memorial Hall.
Students can meet current drumline members and test different percussion instruments, during the meeting.
Richard Puzzo, Jr., assistant professor of music and percussion instructor, said the drumline class will begin in Spring 2019 and will meet from 3 – 4:30 p.m. on Fridays.
They are hoping for at least 17 members due to the 17 instruments they have: six snare drums, three multi tenor drums, five bass drums and three crash cymbals. The snare drums and multi tenor drums are best suited for non-music students who have previous experience, and the bass drums and crash cymbals are best suited for students without experience.
The group will continue to perform with the Eagle Band at athletic events, but will also play choreographed routines during halftime at football and basketball games. Puzzo not only wants to perform at sporting events, but events like meeting and conferences to “increase our visibility on campus and our musical service.”
“It’s a great opportunity to be a part of something bigger than the one person and one instrument you are,” Austin Pfeiffer, 19, sophomore of Alliance, said.
