Congratulations, World Champion Millennium Band Alum!

Posted on Updated on

Congratulations, Kristen Lichtenthal!!! The Millennium Band Alum served as one of the Drum Majors for the Blue Devils Drum & Bugle Corps as they won the Drum Corps International World Championships on Saturday night (August 9).  The group won its 16th championship in record-breaking fashion, beating the previous mark by half a point!

In her time as a musician, Kristen has parlayed her love of music into playing bassoon, becoming a percussionist (Infinity Percussion Ensemble), and majoring in music education at the University of Central Florida.  Click the image to see the article about the championship win, and view the video below (in which, Kristen is prominently featured!)
