Eric Kruse is an accomplished percussion educator, arranger, and sound designer. He has joined the Santa Clara Vanguard this season as a member of the audio team. In the last 20 years, Eric’s compositions have been played across the country in College Stadiums, BOA Grand Nationals, and WGI Finals. His love for the marching arts draws inspiration from his Colorado roots, where he was a member of the Blue Knights Drum Corps and Percussion Ensemble.
