Meet the 2008 Conductors

Three conductors have been selected for the upcoming season. Last year's backfield conductor, Zach Headden, will lead the team. He is assisted by veteran member and past euphonium player, Joel Agalsoff, and a new member to Pacific Crest, Mark Kveton.

After graduating from Los Altos High School in 2007, he enrolled at California State University, Fullerton, where he is working on his Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education. When not practicing his saxophone or studying, he enjoys hanging out with friends, watching movies, shooting pool, and spending time with his family. "This season, I am most looking forward to helping the corps reach new heights with new staff and a higher level of expectation of the members. I am very excited and can't wait to see the show on the field."

He graduated from Rowland High School in 2007, and is currently attending the University of California Irvine as a Psychology and Social Behavior major. Mark was born and raised in Walnut, California, with his twin brother, Eric. "This will be my first year in Drum Corps. This season, I am hoping to contribute to this passionate group of performers. I’ve seen the many changes the corps has made and I’m incredibly excited to be a part of it."

Although he grew up just down the street from Diamond Bar High School (PC's home base), he graduated from Troy High School in Fullerton. Currently, he is pursuing two degrees in Computer Science and Psychology at the University of Southern California. In his spare time, he enjoys tinkering with computers. "This season, we are revisiting the darker themes of the corps’ past. It's how I began my time here in 2005 and I can't think of a more fitting end to my journey as a drum corps 'senior citizen'."
