Reviews for Crossmen Productions Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

This is an amazing organization which fully accomplishes its mission. They not only focus on the musical and performance development of the members, but also work to develop organizational skills, responsibility, and teamwork. The members come out of their experience having acquired skills they will use throughout their lifetime, no matter where their career choice takes them. The corps directors are truly caring people who focus on the individual. They have maintained a family environment - members and volunteers are treated as family and are always welcomed back.

From a young age I was very big in to music. When I joined The Crossmen, I was able to improve not only my musicianship but it taught me so much more. I learned more through my time in the Crossmen than I had leading up to that time in my life. Discipline, team work, musicianship, hard work and dedication...These are just a few traits I learned during my time with the corps. these traits would propel me to a very successful military career which without the Crossmen, I would not have been able to do. The people, the administration, the quest for success through building positive citizens is what an organization is all about!

This organization is perfect for young adults to participate in! Not only do they receive top level performance education, they also get an opportunity to entertain thousands of people across the country each summer. The performers in this ensemble learn more about themselves and what they can accomplish as a greater whole. Being a member for four years was life-altering and I still utilize the lessons and tools that I learned from the experience.

As a professional that is a former beneficiary of this great group's work I can't say enough how it helped me grow as an individual and as a professional. As a youth it taught me discipline and team work. As a young professional it gave me a environment that allowed me to grow artistically and as an educator. Most of all I learned to not settle for what was comfortable but to push for excellence.

I have donated to Crossmen Productions for the past 3 years. The experience they provide to young musicians is surpassed by no other organization. They have a reputation for professionalism in their field, and for staffing some of the most talented music educators. Any young musician would be happy to share their summers with the Crossmen.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I see young musicians grow and learn every summer. I see them learn about working hard to achieve what they desire. They learn self-discipline, self-esteem, and most of all they learn how to be a team player.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would try my best not to change anything about how this organization is run.

Crossmen Productions does an amazing job servicing their community of San Antonio. The opportunity they offer music students is top-notch. They love that is put into making their organization run is inspirational.

The struggle to fund this non-profit organization, as with most non-profits, is always a challenge. The work they do to make things happen is never-ending.

Any help would always make a difference!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

helping them get organized when they took over the organization in 2007. They have done a top-notch job in establishing this organization in the TX area.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Keep on working to make the business side of the organization a stronger presence in the TX band scene. Each year, this gets better and better!

I have marched with the Crossmen for seven years and we had a great time traveling and competing with a group that I now call my Family. I still follow the Crossmen when they come back East and cheer them on at the shows that I can attend.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

We learned team work and work ethics. We had to get along with all of the members of the Crossmen. We worked toward one Goal, to compete and do the best that we could do and to continue to increase our scores and Placement every day.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to get Sponserships for the kids so that they could march at a lower cost that they are paying today and also for the Crossmen to keep them on the Road. It is harder today to keep this activity alive due to the cost of Diesel and the everyday expeses for feeding the kids. It is also harder to get donations from the public because of the Economy.

I marched with the Crossmen for six years. I had a great time with the Crossmen and my experiences with them made me the person I am today. I have met some of the greatest people in the world and I can't imagine my life without them.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My everyday life because of the people I met there. They are the best friends I've ever had.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have consistent staff members every year.
