MILTON, Ga. — Ethan Leonard, a senior at Milton High School, auditioned for and was accepted to play with the Bluecoats Drum Corps of Canton, Ohio, during their 2014 season.
Leonard has marched for and been a part of the MHS wind ensemble for four years. He will spend his entire summer before his freshman year in college traveling and marching with the drum corps.
The Bluecoats Drum Corps is a youth music and performance training program that facilitates a competitive drum and bugle tour across the United States each summer. Leadership, character and social development skills are emphasized by the program through the challenge, excitement and self-discipline of travel, competition and the pursuit of excellence.
The Bluecoats are one of the highest ranked Drum Corps International teams. Several thousand student students from around the world try out for a handful of spots each year.
