New week? More SUMBlog posts!
Up first, we got Elliot Pippin. Elliot is a Section Leader from the trombone section. Elliot spent the summer in his hometown of Meadville, PA. There, he hung out with his friends and his cats while counting down the days until band camp! Elliot’s advice for incoming rookies is to bring water backpacks (available at your local Walmart). This way, you dont have to run to get your water because it’s right there on your back!
Next, we have Chelsea Siegal! Chelsea is a trumpet Section Leader and one of the SocialUMediaB team leaders for 2018. From Port Washington, NY (on Lawn Guyland), she spent her summer interning for the Elmira Pioneers collegiate baseball team in Elmira, NY. There, she created video packages of game footage and player interviews. Chelsea’s advice to rookies: get to know your section/fellow band members! There are sooo many great people in the SUMB, so don’t be afraid to start a conversation. When Chelsea was a freshman, some of her closest friends in band were juniors/seniors!
