Every Friday, The Cavaliers Drum & Bugle Corps will be featuring a Fan of the Week for our Fan Fridays effort! Young, old, far and wide - our incredible fans are at the center why we do what we do! This week, let's meet Sarah Shepherd!
1. Please state your name, age and hometown (and Twitter handle, if you have one).
Sarah Shepherd, I'm 19, and I am at the University of West Florida in Pensacola, Fla.
2. How long have you been a Fan of The Cavaliers?
I have been a Cavaliers fan since I was in 9th grade (when I was 14 years old).
3. What is your favorite Cavalier program and why?
I have two favorite shows: 'Niagara Falls' and 'Mad World.' I love the music in 'Niagara Falls,' but I met the entire corps in 2010 for 'Mad World' because I made them all cookies -- It's hard to beat that!
4. What music/show would you like to see The Cavaliers perform?
I would love to hear The Cavaliers do an excerpt from Rocky Point Holiday, because that is my favorite piece of music.
5. Are you making it to a drum corps show this summer? If so, which one(s)?
I am going to be at the show in Dothan, Ala., this summer on June 21. I am over-the-moon excited to see The Cavaliers because I missed them last year, and I know they'll be amazing!
6. What do The Cavaliers mean to you?
To me, The Cavaliers are the ultimate drum corps. When I met them, I got to see how each member really loves drum corps and being a Cavalier. They are all so nice and they care about their fans. I will always be a Cavalier fan 110 percent, and I am ready to watch them bring it home this summer!
Sarah - Thanks for letting us get to know you just a little better during Fan Fridays!
