The Cavaliers Drum & Bugle Corps consists of many moving parts -- from new and veteran marching members to dedicated management, staff, and volunteers. Throughout this summer, we'll be featuring the people who help shape the Cavalier experience, giving YOU a behind-the-scenes perspective on your favorite corps. The Cavaliers are proud to welcome you, Inside the Green Machine!
In our next installment, we feature first-year member of the front ensemble, Cory Glenn:
Please tell us your name, hometown and a little about your time with The Cavaliers.
My name is Cory Glenn, and I'm from Austin, Texas. I play vibraphone in the front ensemble, and this is my first year with the corps.
What do you do outside of The Cavaliers?
I go to Texas State University, where I study History.
Why did you initially choose The Cavaliers?
A staff member from a corps I marched previously suggested that I audition for The Cavaliers.
What is your all time favorite Cavaliers program?
I'm going to say 'Mad World' from 2010. A good friend of mine marched with The Cavaliers that year, and it was the first time I saw the corps live.
What makes the 2012 season unique?
The enthusiasm that everyone has is great, and it will definitely help us out through the season.
What do The Cavaliers mean to you personally?
I'm learning more about the organization every day. There's an incredible sense of camaraderie here.
