Johnson HS student performs with national band

Christian Serrano, a member of the Johnson High School Band, recently performed with the nine-time World Champion Cadets Drum and Bugle Corps, at the DCI World Championships in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The event was especially meaningful for the corps as it’s currently ranked in first place going into the finals. Serrano had the opportunity to be a part of The Cadets as they looked to earn their 10th DCI World Championship in Indianapolis last weekend.

Serrano was selected from more than 400 high school and college aged musicians through a rigorous audition process that occurred during the months of November and December 2010. Because The Cadets are based out of Allentown, PA, Serrano traveled each month to rehearse with the corps in preparation for their 2011 summer tour. Previously, Serrano marched for a year with the San Antonio based Crossmen Drum and Bugle Corps.
