Hello everybody! I’m Nico Salum! I’m a 21 year old biochemistry major at California State University, Bakersfield. I have been playing euphonium for nearly seven years. I am currently a member of the CSUB Concert Band and the CSUB Pep Band. Additionally, I am an instructor at my alma mater, Centennial High School. It has been a dream of mine since high school to march in a World Class drum corps.
Fortunately, I have been accepted into the Pacific Crest Drum and Bugle Corps, Southern California’s only World Class drum and bugle corps, for the 2014 season on euphonium. This summer, we will be presenting No Strings Atttached…, a show that will musically and visually explore the world of puppets from our perspective and theirs, to nearly 100,000 fans in live performances and in cinemas across the country.
Being a part of Pacific Crest will cost me $2,000. This fee covers transportation, lodging, meals, uniforms, instruments, equipment, production, and instruction.
I will be a rookie age-out (aka rookout), meaning that this will be my ONE AND ONLY SUMMERas a performer on a World Class corps.
It will be greatly appreciated if you considered helping my dream become a reality by donating what you can and sharing this campaign with friends and family. Any amount donated will go a mile and more in helping me march my ONE AND ONLY SUMMERof drum corps. Non monetary donations are also welcome.
If you have any questions about donating or anything about what this summer entails for me or would like to support my dream non-monetarily please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
