mandarins drum and bugle corps

My name is Pierce Halliburton . I am 21 years old, and I’m a full time college student majoring in Music and Theatre Arts with a Psychology minor at Crafton Hills College. Recently, I flew out to Sacramento California to auditioned for Mandarins Drum and Bugle Corps.
The Mandarins Drum and Bugle Corps is a World Class (formerly Division I) competitive junior drum and bugle corps. Based in Sacramento, California, the Mandarins is a member corps of Drum Corps International(DCI).[1] The stated purpose of a DCI corps is “…to provide a life changing experience for youth through the art of marching musicperformance.” The DCI competitive summer tour, consisting of DCI-sanctioned competitions throughout the United States, culminates in August with the week-long DCI World Championships.[1][2] (source: Wikipedia)
I’m proud to say that I have recieved a membership contract with The Mandarins! I’m truly honored to have the opportunity to march my age out year with the Mandarins and to be able to further my knowledge and experience in percussion. I’ve worked hard in order to get this opportunity and I look forward to working hard this summer in order to become a better musician. It has been my dream to march drum corps and now that dream is within reach.
In order for me to be able to live my dream of marching drum corps I must first pay my membership fees as well as my tour fees. I am in need of financial assistance in order to be able to secure my spot at Mandarins and to be able to tour/compete with the well known Mandarins Drum and Bugle Corps.
The 2015 season will be an important summer of hard work and growth for me, as well as dream that will be fulfilled with your help.
