That's a wrap, folks! It's the end of finals season and thus the end of the Spring 2015 semester. Our seniors (Emma,
Daphne, and Venna) are graduating and are off to do their incredible old people things, and our best wishes to them! Thank
you for being so amazing, and we love you gals so much
that we might kidnap you in the future, just kidding what
. Have a great summer everyone, and we'll see you in the fall! As always, anyone who wants their website info
updated can send Steph an email at any time. Seriously, she doesn't bite, like, 80%
of the time.
The Cornell University Big Red Color Guard is by far the best-looking section of the largest student-run organization on campus, the Big Red Marching Band, or BRMB. We march actual drill with actual equipment, compared to the erratic, bench-playing scatter bands of the other Ivy League institutions. This makes us the only REAL colorguard in the only REAL marching band in the Ivy League.
The guard writes our own routines (and sometimes drill, too) to suit our needs. Having to learn a new show every two weeks means we generally stick to using flags, although rifles, sabres, and other props have made appearances in recent shows.
The Color Guard isn't the largest section (saxes?), the loudest section (trumpets?), or the rowdiest section (tubae?), but we have a great time doing what we do.
Questions about the Guard? Interested in joining? Contact our captain, Sarah.
