2015 Local Corps Member: Brian Reel

Performing Corps: Troopers Drum & Bugle Corps


Marching mellophone with the Troopers Drum & Bugle Corps is Newburgh’s Brian Reel. Brian graduated in May from Castle HS, and has been at spring training in Lebanon, IN ever since! He’ll attend Ball State University next fall, majoring in music education.

This is Brian’s first season marching drum corps, and it has apparently been a goal of his since “the first day I marched on the parking lot at Castle High School” with directors Faril Bunner, Mark Eifler, and Tom Dean. He feels that it is a real honor marching with the Casper, WY-based Troopers, with their distinguished history and traditions within DCI. Brian says “it has been a lot of hard work, but it is really exciting putting together the ‘Wild Horses’ show.”

Fans may have caught the live broadcast of the Troopers dress rehearsal, and it sounds like the team from Wyoming is in fantastic shape! Have a great summer, Brian!
