My name is Marisa Spevak. Colts 2011, Phantom Regiment 2012 - 2013 and I am currently playing marimba for the Blue Devils in the 2014 season :) Music makes me happy.

 

I don’t like the idea of ‘understanding’ a film. I don’t believe that rational understanding is an essential element in the reception of any work of art. Either a film has something to say to you or it hasn’t. If you are moved by it, you don’t need it explained to you. If not, no explanation can make you moved by it.

In your opinion which front ensemble is harder to make- Phantom or BD?

Both are extremely competitive and look for different qualities in their members. Too tough to say!

Hi! I just wanted to say that you're an absolute inspiration to me and so many others who march. I'm a huuuugggeeee BD fan, and hopefully I'll be there for the 2016 season! Just seeing how you deal with all the hate is astounding. Okay, that's it, haha

Sorry posting this cause its fantastic! We hype the hate and it’s honestly such a good way to look at things like that in life. BD has shaped my thinking so much in so many good ways! See you for my age out :)! And thank you!!!

Sometimes I play a show, push off the field and I don’t even know what just happened. But I truly believe that’s where the best stuff lives.

I miss this

That one time the Bluecoats ageouts took a selfie with The Cadets narrator, Jordan Koenig, and we tilted.

and the cavalier’s drum major

Stephen Parsons is life

That must have been such a fun theme to have all summer. I’d take so many “tilting” selfies with people :)
