Snyder stated “I am confident that we have assembled one of the best brass teams in the country. Their dedication to providing the performers with a positive and educational experience are unmatched.” “The experience and talent that this team brings to the Mandarins is very exciting; I have no doubt that the members will continue to benefit in 2020 and beyond,” stated Corps Director JW Koester. Program Director, Ike Jackson added, “I am excited with the team that Tim has assembled and I anticipate continued growth within the Mandarins drum corps. This is an exciting time for our organization as we continue to pursue excellence and creativity while presenting entertaining programs for our fans.”
