Seattle Cascades Welcome Back Micah Brusse as 2023 Percussion Caption Manager

The Seattle Cascades is excited to announce the return of Micah Brusse as the Seattle Cascades Percussion Caption Manager.

According to Ray Severns, Director for the Seattle Cascades: "Micah Brusse is a stalwart in the percussion scene in the Northwest and is among the most well-respected composers, educators and performers in the country. While I have not before had the opportunity to work with Micah, I have experienced his work as a competitor and colleague - and as performers on the same team - for over 30 years and I believe he will continue to bring an incredible level of leadership, musicianship and educational prowess to the Seattle Cascades Drum and Bugle Corps. His ensembles have performed and competed at the highest levels, and his inspiring leadership and understanding of the activity are incredible. We are very fortunate to have Micah Brusse on the team and I am very much looking forward to working with him this season."

He has been the Percussion Caption Supervisor for the Oregon Marching Band (University of Oregon) since 1998 and has held the same title with the Seattle Cascades Drum & Bugle Corps since 2017.
