BENEFITING: BOSTON CRUSADERS DRUM AND BUGLE CORPS INC
EVENT: Crusaders California Dreams
EVENT DATE: Mar 30, 2012
I was a member of the Boston Crusaders from 1988-90 and taught for several years as well. The lessons I learned as a member and instructor in Boston still guide me today in my life as an orchestral musician and college instructor. To all my friends who know what I'm talking about, please give back to the corps to make sure that the organization stays strong and continues to impact young people! Sincerely, Maddog Choi.
