For the remaining two weeks of the 2013 summer tour and leading up to 2014 auditions this fall, we will be featuring the members who have lent their hand to the shaping of the Cavalier experience, giving YOU a behind-the-scenes perspective on your favorite corps.
The Cavaliers are proud to welcome you, Inside the Green Machine!
This evening, we will be featuring second-year euphonium player Greg Larson from Des Plaines, Ill. 

Where do you attend school and what do you study?

Harper College, Music

What was your inspiration for joining The Cavaliers?

My 5th grade art teacher presented the 2004 show, “007,” to the class. I have been attending DCI events ever since. After the 2011 program, “XtraordinarY,” I decided to audition.

What is your all time favorite Cavalier program and why?

“Machine” from 2006 is my favorite Cavalier show.

What has been your most memorable moment during your time with The Cavaliers?

Performing at Finals after attending 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011 was one of the coolest things I have ever done.

What is the most important thing you’ve learned during your time with The Cavaliers?

It takes more than wearing a gear to be a Cavalier.

What advice would you give someone who eventually wants to join The Cavaliers/ horn line/ drum line/ front ensemble/ color guard?

Go to the camps even if you think you won’t make the corps.
