Meet New Guard Instructor Sophia Broesamle

Hi! My name is Sophia Broesamle. I am 22 years old and I am the new guard instructor for the Crimson Kings! I graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in Screen Arts and I work full-time at the United Nations as a Program and Marketing Assistant for a non-profit organization. I have 11 years of experience with marching band and 5 years experience with dance and winter guard. In college, I marched with the Michigan Marching Band and was able to be a rank leader for the Michigan Flags. With this Marching Band, I performed in front of over 110,000 people multiple times! It was amazing. In the winters, I marched with the Michigan Winter Ensemble and competed in the Independent A class in WGI and MCGC. I have a great love and admiration for Band and I am excited to be able to work with the Crimson Kings!

As she opened up the door to the tiny office, I saw about a dozen folks sitting wherever possible suddenly look up at us as if we had just walked in on a secret meeting. After looking me up and down, a few of them yelled a "Hi!" while the rest returned to their conversations.
