Marching with the Band of the Ceremonial Guard

When I describe my summer job to people, I often say, “The government pays me to play saxophone and wear a silly outfit,” or, “You know those bearskin hats and red tunics? Yeah. I do that with a saxophone,” or, “It’s sweaty.”

This was my third summer playing with the Band of the Ceremonial Guard, and it was a great season. During one of our last parades, a clarinet player set his instrument aside, strapped a GoPro to his chest, and filmed the entire event! He was directly behind me, so you can get a taste of a day at the office. I’d love to¬†answer any¬†questions about the ceremony or what the job is like in the comments section below!
