Performing Corps: Madison Scouts
Local trumpeter Austin Armstrong is having the summer of his life as a first year member of the Madison Scouts! Austin is currently up at spring training up in Trafalgar, IN…somewhere between Bloomington and Indianapolis. He’s a 2014 graduate of Jasper HS, currently studying music education at Murray State University.
Austin says he couldn’t imagine being anywhere else right now. “I wanted to march because I’ve always loved marching music, and I wanted to take it to the next level. I saw my first DCI show in 2011 at MTSU and I have been hooked ever since!” He said the Madison Scouts perfectly match what he was looking for in a drum corps: “I auditioned for Madison because I felt connected there. I am an Eagle Scout, and the ideals of the Madison Scouts are something I can be proud of and carry with me for the rest of my life!”
While we’ll miss having the fan-favorite Scouts at DRUMS on the OHIO this year, you can see Austin & his comrades perform at a couple of nearby early season shows in Indianapolis and Muncie, IN. And we’re very confident we’ll see the Scouts back at DOTO in the years to come! Have a great summer, Austin, best of luck!
