RCC Announces 2014 Winter Drum Line Cast

After a great audition turnout AND a great weekend of marching and playing – followed by hours of staff conversation and deliberation – the 2014 edition of the RCC Winter Drum Line has been finalized!  There’s already a ‘buzz’ started at the college as the new cast of characters meets for sectionals and anticipates the upcoming contest season, one that will once again include shows throughout the Southland, as well as their 13th consecutive trip to the WGI World Championships in Dayton, Ohio.

Mark Your Calendar!  Auditions for the 2014 edition of the RCC WDL are quickly approaching! AND there’s news about the rehearsal schedule – no more “mid-week” night rehearsals anymore! That means that you CAN go to school, work and live out of the area and still be a part of this amazing organization. The new rehearsal schedule will be much like having ‘camp’ weekends, with the battery practicing Fri-Sat-Sun, with the pit joining in on Saturdays & Sundays. (complete schedule available at auditions)

RCC earns Silver Medal at 2013 WGI World Championships!

“Creativity… we grow out of it, or rather, we get educated out of it.”  With those words by Sir Ken Robinson, the RCC juggernaut was off and running on another exciting and educational journey through the competitive world of indoor percussion / pageantry!  And what a great season it was!  Beginning with one of the largest turnouts in years at the auditions, this tremendously talented group of performers never stopped working, never stopped improving and the result was a hugely rewarding experience for all involved.  Along the way, student performers, judges and audiences alike learned about Ted Talks, especially the February, 2006 one that still ranks as the ‘most viewed’ of them all.
