Band Camp 2019 Email Blast

This information was just emailed to any and all signed up for 2019 Eagle Regiment.  If you have not yet signed up, first...please do to ensure a spot in the drill, second: check out the contents of this message!  If you haven't heard, we are planning to allow Scott Alumni participate in our program if their college schedule does not allow them to be in marching band.  If you are such a person, please sign up as well.  More news on that in the coming days!

Good afternoon all!

You’re receiving this email as you have signed up to be a part of the 2019-2020 Eagle Regiment (known previously as Scott Marching Band)!  The music is written and story-boarding is complete….we are about to move onto prop construction and drill design!  If you don’t know, our show this year is titled “and the Beast” and tells the story of Beast right up until he meets Beauty.  It mixes music from Hans Zimmer’s Interstellar, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Adele, Game of Throne’s Winds of Winter, and Fisher/Keilhauer’s Happily Ever After.  You can listen to the raw Finale audio at this link (but beware, it lacks dynamics and articulations) click here.

This is the year of a new us: a new music suite, new uniforms, new membership, and a new name.  We’re looking to break our past molds this year and look forward to having you be a part of that!
I hope to get any information that you have have missed from our website/Twitter/etc over this Summer and make sure that you are prepared for our 2019 Band Camp…which is fast upon us!  Here is the crucial information/links at a glance:
