Several Tradition members were asked to respond to the question, "Why Tradition?" Here is the response from Jonathan - a 2013 soprano and 2014 baritone player. Keep an eye out for more responses every week!
Tradition was a chance to live a dream. I didn't make junior corps and figured I would never make it so I let it go and moved on. I discovered Tradition by sheer luck while looking at videos on YouTube.
Last season was a tough season it almost didn't happen for me but the Tradition family came through for me and I got to march in a World Championship Finals event. I played with tears coming down my face that night - that's how special of a moment it was.
Tradition is more than a Corps, it's a Family. The people involved are some of the most amazing players I have known and all of them love each other like brothers and sisters should. My time with Tradition has been a blessing. I found a part of me that I lost and am so grateful to have it back. We all march and play for one thing or another but when that crowd roars that's what it's all about.
