Our assistant director this year is Josh Zoppa, a Marysville graduate and junior music education major at Ohio Wesleyan University. He will be working with brasses at camp. Our woodwind instructor is Mr. Scottie Moore, a graduate of Miami University and seasoned band director. He will also be working with visual effects. Our percussion instructor is FHS grad James Montgomery, a student at Ohio University. I'm excited to work with this great bunch of musicians this year!
