Help me march Imperial Dynasty Arts Program 2020

Hi, my name is Michael Feaster and I am a music education major at Salisbury University.  For many years in middle and high school I have had a passion for the marching arts and dreams to march in WGI and DCI. After a long audition process I received a contract to march snare drum at Imperial Dynasty Arts Program, an independent open class WGI ensemble in Wilmington, Delaware. 

Ever since I started band in middle school, marching percussion became a big influence on my life. I performed in the Chichester Middle School indoor drumline from 6th-8th grade in 2013-2015 playing snare drum. When I entered high school, I moved to Middletown, Delaware and joined the marching band and indoor drumline and would further my education as a snare drummer. I would be a member of the Middletown drumline from 2015-2019 as a freshman through a senior, but would take on the role a the drumline section leader my sophomore through senior years of high school. I also marched a summer of drum corp in DCA at the Sunrisers Drum and Bugle Corp in 2018. I have also performed in the Dunkin Donuts Thanksgiving Day parade from 2016-2018 with the TOB All Star Marching Band. 
 
For those that may not know, marching in an ensemble can be expensive. This year, tuition to march will cost me around $1,300 which will cover traveling to and from show/competition sites, rehearsal sites every weekend, my uniform fee, and learning from great and experienced educators. This year, Imperial Dynasty will be performing at high schools in the TriState area, WGI Regionals in Richmond, Virginia, Toms River, New Jersey, and WGI World Championships in Dayton, Ohio. 

Please consider helping me pursue my dream and passion for participating in the marching arts. Any donation helps and if you know someone willing to donate, please share! Thank you so very much!
