Wolfgang Petschke

Wolfgang Petschke

Corps: Seneca Princemen, Seneca Optimists

Wolfgang was a soft-spoken man, with a passion for Drum Corps. He had become the Corps Director of the Seneca Princemen, who were the Canadian National Junior Champions in 1974.

He recognized the new reality of DCI and how difficult it was going to become to compete financially and so he entered into discussions with Al Tierney that eventually turned into the creation of the Seneca Optimists.

He was instrumental in the creation of the new uniforms for Seneca and very proud of the new organization and the smoothness with which it was achieved.
