After marching with the Jersey Surf in 2009, Brian Seemann aged out with the Boston Crusaders in 2012. He graduated from Temple University with a degree in Urban Planning before jumping back into the performing arts. Brian has spent the last four years working with several high school band programs, directing a church handbell program, and directing the Philadelphia Handbell Ensemble, a semi-professional ensemble. Brian currently works in event planning and production for Under the Sun Productions, serves as Event Coordinator for the Handbell Musicians of America, and was also Tour Coordinator for Jersey Surf this summer.
Brian says that because of drum corps, “he can do anything.” He has learned to not be afraid of self-imposed “limits” because, in his words, “you can do anything if you set your mind to it.” Even though handling the logistical details of so many organizations can seem daunting, Brian’s experience in drum corps has prepared him for managing multiple, often simultaneous challenges. “If I can coordinate the operations of getting 200 people, equipment, food, and souvenir operations in 10 vehicles around the country for two months, I’m sure I can handle just about anything else the ‘real world’ might throw at me.”
