Colts Announce 2017 Drum Majors

August 29, 2016

Announcing our two drum majors for the 2017 season: Noah Perkins and Jack Riehl.

Noah Perkins just finished his first season as drum major and fifth as a member of the Colts -- marching the other four on baritone. He is in his third year at the University of Iowa as a trombone performance and instrumental music education major.

"My first season as drum major was very much a growth experience for me, and I'm looking forward to getting to return to the position as drum major as a more experienced and mature leader," said Noah. "It was an honor to stand in front of, and grow with, such an excellent ensemble. The whole Colts organization has been such a great family to me the past five years and I can't wait to see where the 2017 season takes us."

Jack Riehl just finished his third year in the Colts front ensemble playing marimba. Other than playing in the Colts, he has also been a part of Westerville North Marching Band and Westerville North Indoor Ensemble. Originally from Columbus, Ohio, Jack now lives in Cincinnati getting his degree in medical sciences from the University of Cincinnati, which he hopes to use to go to medical school and become a pediatric surgeon.

"Colts has been a family for me since my first season marching here," said Jack. "Everyone was so welcoming and I instantly found people that are still some of my greatest friends today. I'm so excited for the opportunity to become drum major so I will have the chance to repay the organization for everything they have done for me and push the Colts to a new level both on and off the field."

Audition information for the 2017 season will be out soon! Make plans to audition at a camp and become a member of the 2017 Colts.
