Hear from our Clients

“Christopher Caldwell has worked diligently to develop and hone his skills as a designer. His charting mechanics are thorough and his drills work! Most impressive is his ability to get the correct instruments in the right places while telling the story through guard placement and form.”

Bob Buckner

“Working with Chris eliminated the stress and doubt within the design process.  His ideas were visually and musically accurate from start to finish.  The constant positive from all of our judges this year was the design element of our show.  Chris is definitely on top of his game!”
