  1. The Cavaliers 2018, 70 years of excellence

    That's a lot of composers. Generally I find that the more music in a show, the less justice a corps does to any given piece. I hope Cavs avoid that trap.
  2. 2018 Programs & Playlist

    Title: "On Madness and Creativity". Featuring music of George Crumb, Peter Graham, Maurice Ravel, Hans Zimmer, Wojciech Kilar, Lou Reed, James Horner, Rufus Wainwright, and original music by Michael Martin, Michael McIntosh, and Alan Miller.
  3. YEA board resigns

    So it's a useful object lesson for you to be posting as you have (in two threads): before commenting on an explosive subject, we should try to make ourselves fully informed. For instance, are you aware that DCI has put Cadets on probation?
  4. I highly recommend the original post in this thread, which has been updated to include links to many news stories about these events. You'll catch up quickly once youve read that material.
  5. Thanks for posting that very interesting article.
  6. Correct. Board minutes are not included in the 990, nor generally available for public viewing. (However, at least in the organization where I work, the (independent) auditors, when preparing our audited financial statements each year, do ask to review the minutes of our board and finance committee.)
  7. We should also remember that the board membership would have changed from time to time. Has anyone yet worked up a chronological roster of YEA's board, noting when new members joined and others departed?
  8. Can you be more specific? I think maybe a little cleanup is warranted, but this thread, especially now that the original post has been updated to include links to all the news reports is the best place for continued discussion of this story as it develops. The only advice I would give people is not to post in this thread just for the sake of posting. Develop an on-topic argument, or wait for news updates and respond then. It would be fine if this thread got quiet for a while until there was more to discuss.
  9. Maybe mingus could also include a link to this thread, which has been gathering links to responses by corps to the news and links to corps' harassment policies: http://www.drumcorpsplanet.com/forums/index.php?/topic/168300-corps-responses-to-inquirer-article/
  10. Corps Responses to Inquirer Article

    I was sent a link to this article from a North Carolina outlet about Crown's response: http://www.spectrumlocalnews.com/nc/charlotte/news/2018/04/16/abuse-allegations-in-drum-corps-international
  11. Corps Responses to Inquirer Article

    OK, I emailed her a link to this discussion.

    Thanks! I have updated the lists.
  13. Corps Responses to Inquirer Article

    I see that DCA's statement has been expanded a little: "DCA is closely monitoring the changes that have been made to the YEA organization in light of the allegations against its former CEO. DCA will continue to evaluate its policies and procedures as the situation evolves and will take all appropriate actions in order to protect the safety and welfare of all its performers and participants. DCA remains committed to its mission of providing performers with a stimulating and rewarding social experience in a safe environment."

    Thanks. I've moved Bluecoats to the first list in this post.
