Cannot be closer to the truth, from what I know as well.

A lot of word coming out is essentially that...

1 - much can be learned from euphman89's post, and...

2 - this may be the show that should have been done as a 50th anniversary :)


I can agree. From what a couple of people have passed on to me, I'm excited for the possibilities of this show. It does seem a bit more appropriate for a 50th anniversary show than a vampire show. I've listened to some of the source material that was passed on to me on youtube and I think this will be much better and people will really enjoy this.

I asked an acquaintance what's up in Toledo. I am unable to divulge this individual's identity, but let's just say he or she is definitely in a position to know. So, without further ado, here's the message:

(the show is) going to be cool. we are waiting for the release to be sent out. but it will be a mix of old drum corps classics, and some newly composed music. It is going to be a very cool concept which makes our image more solid


So there you go! :)

DCW spilled the beans on composers and show title in the May issue.

The show is called GlassWorks

Music of Glass, Poulan/Ferguson, James Horner, and Camille Saint-Saens

Thinking this should have been the 50th anniversary show.

Mishima - Philip Glass
Original Music - Poulan/Ferguson
Beyond Borders from Etheopia iii - James Horner
Symphony No. 3 - Camille Saint-Saens

Thinking this should have been the 50th anniversary show.


Just to clarify, Brian Hickman provided Drum Corps World with the show title and list of composers only. He did not provide any source music titles, and our repertoires listing in the May issue does not include any source music. So who really "spilled the beans" euphman89?

I wish we'd get a lot more bean spilling from Corps in the offseason on their show and their progress rather than us relying on spleen splitting.

In particular, this corps.

i am now too old to march, and so I will be fulfilling the role of crotchety alum henceforth.

Fantasy, abandoned by reason, produces impossible monsters; united with it, she is the mother of the arts and the origin of marvels.

One of my favorite all-time shows is Regiments 1990 show with the Organ Symphony!!!!

Can't wait to hear the Glassmen's take on it.

It was also used in the film about the pig, "Babe". :thumbup:

I played it in the Hanover Wind Symphony at a concert in a church around 1991 or 92...complete with pipe organ and piano solists. Amazing piece!!!

True, DCW didn't spill the beans in regards to song titles. I'm sorry if I made it seem this way and yes, I may have made a mistake in listing the songs here and have since removed them

I am just confused as to why I as an alumnus of this corps have heard nothing from the organization about the 2012 production when the corps as a whole has known the music for months (since at least February). I really wish that we would start following the success of other organizations who get their name out in social media and release whatever information they can to get people (and future marching members) excited. The Glassmen struggle mightily with PR issues, and I feel like I am being left out in the cold. The only emails I get are to ask me to volunteer or for money. One or two sentences monthly about camps from the Facebook and Twitter accounts. No show announcement. No composers listed. No show description. Nothing and it is the month of move-ins. For a corps that regularly needs members to fill holes even around San Antonio this is not the way to function. I hate having to hear information second-hand through my friends who are marching or Drum Corps World and yet this is how it is.

Each year the Glassmen slip a little more under the radar in the drum corps community. The fiftieth anniversary, which could have been HUGE, was a disappointment for most alumni especially in terms of show design (and I don't even mind that they didn't make finals). Where was this show last year? No homage to our storied past on a MAJOR anniversary.

I know I am just venting right now, but a lot of this has been on my mind for some time now. I love my corps and I had a hell of a time touring with them. I support them and the members in whatever way I can, but this stuff can't be overlooked.
