On Sunday, October 24, The Cavaliers Design Team will converge in Indianapolis, Ind., to continue preparations for the upcoming 2011 season. "After an incredible year with Mad World, we're excited to keep the momentum racing forward with the return of our entire design team," said program coordinator Scott Koter. "It speaks volumes to have such an experienced group of talented and dedicated designers to push The Cavaliers and the drum corps activity into uncharted territories." In addition to our returning designers, we would like to welcome Cavalier alum and long-time percussion staff veteran Alan Miller to the 2011 Design Team.

Miller joins Michael McIntosh as Percussion Composer/Arranger after a 10-year run as the front ensemble's lead technician. Miller takes over primary design responsibility for the front ensemble from Erik Johnson, who will move into a consultant role with The Cavaliers Percussion in 2011. Johnson, founder and president of Innovative Percussion, will focus his efforts on growing his business in the coming year. "With Miller sharing his composition and arranging skills, and Johnson consulting, we're really going to push the boundaries as a percussion team," said McIntosh.
What do YOU want The Cavaliers to perform in 2011?
The message was loud and clear in 2010, as fans across the Cavalier Nation consistently showed their "crazed" approval of Mad World. Koter says, "the difficult part about a wildly successful show is following it up, but the design team can't wait to take on this challenge in 2011."
