Every year, the SCGC Board of Directors are given the honor of inducting members and shows into the SCGC Hall of Fame. This year, SCGC is excited to induct two new members into its Hall of Fame.
KC began her colorguard connection at the age of seven, as a spectator of the 1977 DCI Prelims in Boulder, Colorado. She then followed her passion for performing by marching with the Blue Knights, Thunderbolts, Emerald Marquis, and Cadets of Bergen County. Continuing her love for the activity, she has been an instructor for several marching bands, winterguards and drum corps around the country for the past 35 years.
Since moving to Nashville in 2000, KC has been involved with SCGC as an instructor, a collaborator, and a consultant with several groups in the circuit including Chimeras, Daviess County, Divenire, Eklipse, Father Ryan, Franklin, Hoover, Mt. Juliet, Ravenwood, South Pontotoc, Thompson, and Wilson Central. She has also served as an overall commentary clinician at the beginning of SCGC seasons. KC believes in empowering performers to be their most luminous, empowered and individual selves, while also holding creative space for instructors to achieve their artistic vision through collaborative dialogue about design, choreography and performance.
