"It was a great trip! It was an honor to have clinic time with Col. Arnald Gabriel. He made the ensemble sound better on the march. Our Tour Managers were the real MVPs on this trip; I really can’t thank them enough. The Kennedy Center is amazing. It was amazing to have a private sound check, take pictures and take in the weight of the moment prior to the performance. It allowed the kids to get comfortable in the environment and only focus on performing when on stage. In contrast, we did a festival in Carnegie Hall with a different company, and did not have any time in the hall before our performance. You can hear the difference in the performances. One was nervous and the one at the Kennedy Center was not. Thank you! Working with MCI was a great experience and I would love to work with them again."
