Great Performances - Fred Omega Pye's Mace Salute

In my days at Penn State, a very unique alumni of my chapter of Phi Mu Alpha lived in State College and visited chapter functions on a semi-regular basis. His name is Fred Omega Pye (which I always thought was the perfect name for someone who is a member of a fraternity with greek letters). I had never seen Fred perform, but stories of his prowess with anything that spins (batons, sabers, rifles, and the drum major's mace) were lefendary. Fred is now the color guard coordinator for the UMass Minutemen Marching Band, one of the premiere college bands in the country. The recent loss of iconic director George N. Parks has brought the band a bit more attention than usual. In the midst of it all, Fred recently posted this video from 2009 of his mace salute. I appreciate the opportunity to finally see FOP do his stuff. Enjoy.
