Teal Sound Withdraws from 2012 Season

In a surprising move, Teal Sound has cancelled the rest of their 2012 season. It was announced after the Centerville, OH show Monday night to the members and the drum corp community.

Although extremely disappointing for everyone and after considerable discussion and the remarkable generosity of many great people, our board has determined that in order to ensure the safety and best possible experience for our members, it is best to cease our touring operations for the remainder of this season effective immediately.
- Teal Sound Board of Directors

Many questions arise from this untimely exit from the season: what caused the corp to cease operations in the middle of the season? Did the corp director know if they had enough funds to make it through the entire season? What about the Teal Sound age-outs who were denied their final season? What is the future of Teal Sound?

Here is the press release from DCI.org:
