Founders, MK Raplinger and Seth Neufeldt
Interest in a TCU Marching Arts Forum came after MK Raplinger saw a Facebook post made by Hunter Bown in the fall of 2014. Knowing that this was something that she cared about and wanted to see become a part of TCU, MK contacted Hunter to figure out how to get started. As soon as MK introduced the idea to the TCU band, “Seth was 100%” on board and helped me every step of the way.”
Present and Future Direction
Currently led by MK Raplinger, the TCU Marching Arts Forum will have 2-3 more forums this semester. For the Fall semester, Raplinger plans to host “viewing sessions” of the live-streamed UNT Marching Arts Forums where they will briefly discuss the events afterwards. We highly recommend this for other universities across the country who may have trouble finding clinicians.
