Pacific Crest is proud to introduce our drum major team for the 2019 season: Andrea Nordahl, Amber Cameron, and Bianca Dulong!
Nordahl, Cameron, and Dulong are all returning members of Pacific Crest. “We’re excited to have these three amazing individuals leading the corps this season,” says Mark Kveton, Student Leadership Coordinator. “After a very competitive audition process, we know this is the team to take the ensemble to the next level.”
As Pacific Crest gears up for January Camp, CEO Stuart Pompel looks forward to the team’s first weekend leading the corps. “These three young women are going to be fantastic leaders and conductors. We are all super excited for them and for the 2019 Pacific Crest.”
