Social Media Summer Intern
"My time in the Blue Devils, and especially the tour season, has taught me that sometimes things are out of my control, and I've learned to kind of just go with the flow. It's so easy to get lost in what we call "corps reality" during the tour season because everything is planned out for us - we don't really have the opportunity to make our own decisions that much, because we have such a structured schedule that focuses on enhancing our skills on the field, along with the show. The lessons that I've learned here in the Blue Devils carry over into the other 9 months of the year when I'm not involved in this activity - it helps in every walk of life."
When asked about her thoughts regarding the Re:rite of Spring, Rachel was nothing but optimistic about the publics reception of the show. "It was already such a monumental piece to begin with, and I think that people will see our show with that fact in mind and it will help them to really get a grasp on what were trying to convey through our performance. The entire ensemble has just been focused on portraying this intense piece correctly, and I definitely think we're going to be successful in conveying the message."
The Blue Devils have one more day here in Madera, and will continue to prepare for our Clovis and Stanford shows this weekend. Keep up with us on our Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram pages, as well as right here in bdmediabox.org.
