  1. Funny . Good luck. But i forgot about time difference here in ohio and st louis. Figured there was some delay. But willing to wait
  2. How far we from getting scores?
  3. Yes i agree. The first part is her dream, an anxiety dream of performing, hence the big surreal chairs. Plus if you watch her in the first movement she doesnt sing but acts out lots of fearful expressions and nerve. The music also is full of tension and is discordant. The 2nd part is the build up to actually performing, the feeling of just taking a risk, getting over fear and going for it. The song she sings is of gambling, taking a chance, going for it. They then carry her back to where she started and she performs God Bless the Child which she only imagined in the beginning. And then out come the real chairs, the real ones, ones everyone can sit in, not the big ones of her dream. And the music soars and is stunning, and her performance shines. The last part seems to me to be the exhilaration one feels after a great performance.
  4. David Glasgow certainly moved this Corps forward in so many ways from when he took over. So glad to see he will be with them for this season, and no doubt Mike will make the transition a smooth one and continue the pursuit of excellence the Bluecoats always strive for. Continued success to the Bluecoats!

    I bought mine as well last monday and cant believe how fast they sell--the two middle sections (not upper) go in seconds--its hard for me to believe they dont hold some back because each year i go i will be around people who have never been to a show--it seems impossible they bought theirs in October --in a matter of a couple minutes. Oh well it is a mystery to me
  8. I guess i see that it has changed for the moment. And the usual rules for the football field and game do change. Each drum corps show the field changes from its usual purpose as a football field to a place for something completely different--a show. As dci has continually changed through the years, some of the changes have dealt with the parameters of the field--not following the boundaries of a football field and its rules for the game--so they allow members beyond the "the out of bounds" lines etc. so all i am saying for crowns show is that they make actual changes to the field by removing the lines, numbers,, and rearrange it.
  9. This can add new sense to the singer as she sings "i have been changed for good." Because of drum corps, the football field has been changed for good. Bluecoats tilted it and now Crown is tearing it up. i dont always need an interpretation of every moment but it is meaningful to me to add some insights and ideas each time i see it. i think the throwingg of the zeros ws added last night and the "torn up" Colts flag as well--so they do change the football field.
  10. For me those runs by the front ensemble (Marimbas especially) are the most emotional moment for me in the whole show. So when they turn and the horns are playing that gorgeous slow part and the marimbas then do this amazing run, i guess it is the contrast for me that is so powerful, somehow the front is capturing the pulse and energy of this whole movement (maybe even show) for me, and it catches me emotionally everytime. I have been lucky enough to see their show live 9 times this season and see numerous rehearsals and i would agree that the electronics at this point have not been consistent; sometimes the front overpowers the horns, other times there has been no amplification, but each time it still is a powerful moment for me. But i certainly understand everyone reacts differently to all these moments in what they want, wish or hope for. Anyway it will be interesting to see how this all continues to evolve, but i am guessing they will keep the ballad to the back --though i am glad for the change in the soloist approach in placement and instrument.
  11. I am currently in Denver and it is raining a lot--I hope it clears up--the rain in Casper was a downpour -so i hope there are not two cancelled shows for them. Plus any moisture on that stage for the Bluecoats and it becomes more dangerous than it already is. I also love the new changes in Bluecoats show, especially for the brass during the drum break. Stop the rain and let them compete!
