Atlanta CV has added two new key members to the design team for the 2013 season. Brass arranger Jair Klarfeld and drill designer Gareth Skipp will be working closely with Program Coordinator Victor Mooney and Caption Heads Alan Armstrong, Chris Romanowski and Carlos Gonzalez to produce CV’s 2013 program “Carpe Caelum: Seize The Heavens.”
Klarfeld, who resides in San Antonio, TX, has more than 20 years of experience arranging for bands, jazz and concert ensembles and drum and bugle corps. More than 400 groups have performed his works, including marching bands at the highest levels of Bands Of America Grand Nationals, BOA Regional competitions, USSBA State competitions and other prestigious venues.
I am extremely excited to announce our Percussion Staff here at Atlanta CV for the 2013 season. The wealth of knowledge that they bring to the table is impressive and very exciting. With our front ensemble, Mr. J.T. Snell is returning for 2013, as well as Mr. Eric Brown with our battery section. Mr. Matthew Manturuk who is currently in the Annapolis Navy Band is returning as our Front Ensemble Arranger.
New to 2013, Dr. Jeff Grant brings a wealth of percussion experience to our front ensemble. He earned his Doctorate in Percussion from Southern Miss where he studied with John Wooten, and is a former member of the Spirit of Atlanta ('92/'93) and the Cavaliers ('95).
Three key caption heads have announced that they will be returning to their respective roles with Atlanta CV Drum and Bugle Corps. Victor Mooney will be returning for his third season as Program Coordinator and Guard Caption Head. Under Mooney, the CV Guard has captured the attention of the DCA community with its bold, captivating design and continued success. Mooney is thrilled about the progress and excited about what's ahead. "After the emotional finals run CV had in Annapolis I think everyone realized that the Corps had definitely taken a huge step." Mooney said. "At that moment I was ready to start the 2013 season - every finish line is the beginning of a new race!"
