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!
Congratulations to Jeff Sacktig on your appointment to the D.C.I. hall of fame! Jeff and his brother, winter guard program director John Sacktig, were pivotal, along with Garfield Cadets/Cadets of Bergen County guard legend April Gilligan, in the success of New York Crimson Kings Drum, Fife, & Bugle Corps winterguard winning back to back NJA “A” Class championships in 1991 and 1992, and a W.G.I “A” Class Bronze medal in 1993. =)
