Women Crush Wednesday: SUMB Edition

In less than 3 months, the Carrier Dome will be filled with the 2015-2016 Pride of the Orange! Some of the first people the new rookies meet on campus will be the leadership team of section leaders, music instructors and drum majors!

Throughout the summer, join us on the SUMBlog as we get to know next year’s team players. Hear tips from veteran members, put faces with names and learn why YOU should join the SUMB!

Starting us off we have the 3 M’s, our new drum majors! Make sure to check back weekly to get to know everyone!

Name: Marguerite KreitsekMaggie_Kreitsek
Year: Junior
Major: Music Education
Hometown: Liverpool, New York
Position: Drum Major
Favorite thing about the SUMB: The SUMB gives everyone a chance to be a part of marching band even if they didn’t have the chance to before coming to college. I like that there are so many people with diverse majors in the SUMB, which goes to show that you don’t need to be a music major to continue making music! There are also so many travel opportunities, and we get to do really amazing gigs
Favorite activity outside of marching band: Spending time with my friends and family
Veteran tip: Enjoy these next four years, they are going to fly by! Take advantage of every opportunity in college and do things that are out of your comfort zone.
What would you do if you won the lottery? Pay off loans and travel.

Hometown: Wakefield, MA
Position: Drum Major
Favorite thing about the SUMB: The great sense of community
Favorite activity outside of band: Traveling
Veteran tip for band camp/school: Be yourself! So clichè but it’s easy to forget. You have a totally clean slate and people who will accept you for who you are, and that’s really cool!
What superpower do you wish you had and why?: The ability to fly. You can go anywhere and see so many cool views!
What fictional world would you most like to live in?: Maybe something like in Avatar, but with a lot of sloths 🙂

Favorite thing about the SUMB: From day one I always felt like I belonged in the SUMB. We have such a strong sense of community, and that’s something I really love in this organization.
Favorite activity outside of band: There are activities outside of band?
Veteran tip for band camp/school: Be open to meeting lots of new people and making new friends. It sounds cliche, but you really never know when or where you might find a lifelong friend.
What superpower do you wish you had and why? I wish I had super strength, so then I would actually be able to carry around all the heavy instruments I play.
What would be written on your tombstone? “I’m ready!” – Spongebob
What’s your dream job? I would love to work in the Operations department for a well-known orchestra.
