When members of Eagle Pride, the CJ marching band and color guard, came back to school in July for their annual band camp, they also welcomed two new instructors.
Caleb Vanden Eynden, a senior at the University of Dayton, is instructing the drum line and Emily Kramer, a junior at the University of Dayton, is instructing the brass. Both college students are studying music education.
Eagle Pride Director Luke Grieshop, now in his third year of leading the group, said this year’s show will have a lot more movement compared to last year.
“Our show this year is a Latin show,” said Grieshop. “That music is always so exciting and has these fun rhythms that get people to move. We also have a lot more movement in each song. Last year for example, we maybe had a total of 30 sets. One of our songs this year has 20 sets.”
Eagle Pride performs before football games and during half-time of the competitions.
