Name: Kierstin Blomberg
What is your favorite area of musical involvement? I'd have to say I enjoy marching band and then any type of concert band about the same. I love the passion, energy, and awesomeness that is marching band, but I also love playing classical pieces...with the music actually in front of me...and being able to sit. In concert band, I can put all of my focus and energy just in the music, although, nothing beats Jack Trice on game day : )
What interests you about TBΣ? I first heard of Tau Beta Sigma when after every rehearsal on Wed, Sarah Buck would come over to the rookies and remind us, yet again, that there was a meeting that night. After finally figuring out what it was, I thought it sounded like a lot of fun, plus I would get to see band people all year round.
Tell us about your musical past. I have been playing the clarinet since the 5th grade. It's the only instrument I know how to play. I've done marching band, concert band, pep band (not here...yet), and pit band for musicals.I thought about learning sax to join jazz band when my high school director wouldn't let a clarinet in, but I felt like I would have been betraying my clarinet, so I never learned...I'd love to learn the violin though! And piano..and guitar..and harmonica. Who doesn't love a good harmonica solo?
