My name is Kentaro Mori, and I was recently offered a contract to march with The Cadets Drum and Bugle Corps, one of the oldest drum and bugle corps in the United States and a 10-time DCI World Champion. This has been a long time dream of mine ever since seeing their show in 2011. I will be spending the summer rehearsing 12 hours a day, traveling across the country, and performing at a total of 33 shows. Through this experience, I hope to grow as a person and foster lifelong friendships.
However, this life-changing activity comes at a huge price of $3600, which goes toward instruction, instruments, uniforms, food, gas, etc. This fee is especially difficult to pay while being an international student at a private college (limited job opportunities and federal aid). This is why I am asking for your help. Any amount of contribution would be greatly appreciated.
