Saturday – March 29th

Noon – 3:30pm MCM Family Day at Centennial Park

Location: Centennial Park – Near Events Pavilion (site of early MCM rehearsals)

Cost: FREE

Bring friends and family for this informal chance to catch-up and reminisce with MCM alumni and their kids. Bring your own picnic items, Frisbees, footballs, etc. and we will enjoy a nice afternoon at the park. We will meet up at the Event Pavilion on the Northwest side of the park (large covered concrete pavilion). Early MCM alums will remember this as the site of many rehearsals when housing sites would fall through. This is a family-friendly event that is open to all friends of MCM!

3:30pm – 4:30pm MCM PAS Day-of-Percussion Clinic / Performance

Location: Belmont University – Sport Science Building (corner or Belmont Blvd and Delmar Ave)

Cost: MCM Clinic FREE to MCM Alums – ($10.00 per person for PAS full day event)

The 2014 MCM full ensemble will be conducting a1-hour clinic as part of the Percussive Arts Society Day-of-Percussion at Belmont University. The clinic will be conducted by the current MCM staff and will include a review of the MCM teaching methods, fundamentals, and a breakdown of the 2014 MCM program “Windows to the Soul” – including full performance. This is an excellent opportunity to see the state of the marching arts activity as it is in 2014. (It is hard to believe how much things have evolved in 20-years!) The TN PAS chapter has graciously agreed to allow MCM alums and their families to attend the clinic for free. If you are interested in attending the full day-of-percussion event, the admission is $10.

5:00pm – 10:00pm MCM Alumni Mixer

Location: Sportsman’s Grill – 21st Avenue – UPSTAIRS

Cost: Individuals responsible for their own tab

This event is open to MCM alumni and friends (21 yrs and up only) to socialize and reminisce at a local “watering hole” following the MCM PAS Day-of-Percussion clinic performance at Belmont. Come by for a cocktail with your former MCM alums. There are ample pool tables, TV’s (March Madness will be in full swing), good food available, etc. for us to enjoy as we swap stories of our “glory years” of MCM.

Sunday – March 30th

11:00am – 2:00pm MCM Alumni Brunch

Location: Spring Hill Middle School (3501 Cleburne Rd. Spring Hill, TN 37174)

Cost: FREE (Donations accepted)

This family-friendly event is open to MCM Alums and their families and will include a fully catered brunch, discussions about the “state of the organization”, introduction of current staff/board, viewing of MCM videos, “then and now” pictures of each year, maybe even an “old timers” drum-off, …and much more! The location is the current rehearsal “home” of MCM.
