This week has been a tough one for a lot of Blue Stars alum with the passing of DCI Founder and past Blue Stars Director, David Kampschroer. Dave was one of the founding members of Drum Corps International, the first person to be inducted into the DCI Hall of Fame, and was Director of the Blue Stars.
I am so grateful for anyone who helped laid out the foundation for the Blue Stars back in the early years. Dave was one of the people that laid down these foundations. Blue Stars is very well known for it's sense of family and tradition in appreciation and recognition of all members who made the current season possible. Being humble together in a time of success with a drive and passion to continue striving for the best we can be was part of Dave's legacy to the Blue Stars. He will be missed greatly by the performing arts community, but remembered for his passion and dedication to helping others realize they were capable of so much more than they thought was possible and putting our corps motto to the test every day in his work.
Finis Coronat Opus, Dave.
Thanks for making the Blue Stars a place to call home.
