ATL Drum and Bugle Corps to start practices. All Altanta area trumpet players are invited to participate.

I [ Dr. Michael Schmidt] need some help please getting ATL started. If we can I would like to see ATL compete in next years DCI SE Sound Sport competition held in downtown Atlanta. I would like to start trumpet sectionals – practice early this fall if anyone [ especially trumpet players] would like to help. Because we are doing Sound Sport, and not DCI per se, we will be using trumpet players who are over the age of 22 for now. So for now, all trumpet players of all ages are invited to attend. I am looking for one brass arranger and one or two trumpet players who can also help us teach. We also are going to need one set drummer Ron Thorpe ?? Or perhaps someone else from metro Atlanta, so we need at least one drummer for the DCI SE show. I could also use some volunteers who would help with things like paperwork, raising money, etc. We are allowed to have a lot of people compete so you out of town great trumpet players Legends Trumpet Mouthpieces , etc. are invited to compete with us if you can learn the music in time. We could also use some vintage Spirit of Atlanta trumpet players to help play with us the first year. No excuses, this will give me a chance to finally do some screamin and soloing in vet age drum and bugle corps. For now we are using Bb trumpets, b y o trumpet. Please contact the Trumpet of the Lord office if interested.
