As we embark on a new Lunar new year and prepare for the upcoming summer drum corps season, we remember a tremendous highlight from last year. On August 1, 2014, the Crimson Kings Drum Corps marched on the field for the first time in 22 years with our field show program “Skyward”!
2015 marks the Crimson Kings 65th year in drum corps! We are looking forward to continuing the traditions of class, excellence and pride for many years to come. As we mark this anniversary, we begin our retrospective on the corps, looking back on the history and accomplishments of the Corps throughout the decades. We also look back on the recent past few years and acknowledge that 2012, the year of the dragon, was quite a milestone year for the Crimson Kings.
This year we were invited to open up the 4th Annual Moon Festival and Fashion Show by Asian In NY. Though it was our first time performing at the event, we felt right at home. It didn't hurt that the show took place in the New York Chinese School auditorium. Our commute was about 5 flights of stairs. Not bad! We didn't know quite what to expect, but as we headed down for a quick run-through we quickly realized this was going to be a fun performance.
