Genesis Teams up with TAMA Marching Percussion in 2014!
Genesis Drum and Bugle Corps is pleased to announce its partnership with TAMA Marching Percussion for 2014! "We are very much looking forward to this opportunity.", says Executive Director Chris Magonigal. "When we realized that this could become reality through the fundraising efforts of our program we all could not wait for this weekend to get here. Having seen the drums and talking with Tom Float each year at TMEA, I knew that these instruments were exactly what our percussion program were looking for. Being the first to use these instruments in the ranks of DCI is going to be an exciting adventure."
Genesis debut the new drums to the members this weekend and you can see photos of the camp on our Facebook page.
Stay tuned for more information about this exciting new partnership!
Genesis Drum & Bugle Corps Finds a New Home in Austin!
2013 was an incredible year for the Genesis program. As a performing unit we were able to accomplish many goals and establish our Drum Corps as a premier destination for students looking to take their skills to the next level.
In addition we saw tremendous growth in both membership and what we are able to offer our students. Going in to 2014 we felt we needed to be in a better geographical location to serve the students that were coming to our events and that had the desire to participate with Genesis. Our home in Edinburg was key to our early success and was a great community for us to grow. However it was evident to our team that we were not in a location that would allow us to move to the next level and realized the financial toll it was taking on any students out side of the area to march with our program.
After extensive deliberation and many hours of exploration, it was decided that Austin Texas would be the permanent home for our Genesis family. With its centralized location, dedication to the arts and its financial possibilities, Austin is the perfect city from which to operate our program.
We are still dedicated to the RGV and its students. We have plans for future programs to launch in that area as well as the fact that we are dedicated to creating opportunities for marching the Genesis program easier on the Valley students.
We are excited about the future in our new home and will be launching many initiatives and community programs as we settle in. 2014 will be an exciting year for the Genesis program and we all look forward to representing the great State of Texas and Austin at the DCI and WGI World Championships!
