    The Gershwin Piano Concerto would be great. It would be cool to see them mix that with Cuban Overture from the '94 show. They've explored Rhapsody in Blue and American in Paris enough, but there's plenty more out there.

    Wasn't referring to you. I will say, however, that there are people that do exactly as I describe, and IMO shouldn't be taken seriously and are doing nothing to help. Feel free to PM me if you'd like.

    That's great, and thank you for supporting the corps. My point is geared towards people that don't support the corps in anyway, and don't reach out to the individuals that can take comments seriously. My initial post was also about you stating that the corps doesn't look like itself, and while that's true in some ways, it's also false in a number of ways. Chris is a great guy, and a great leader, I'm glad you're able to count him as a friend.

    You're right, I do support the corps, but not blindly. I take my concerns and issues to people within the organization, not hiding behind a screename on here. I've had plenty of conversations with board members and admins, but I know that they don't take comments seriously from random accounts on DCP or reddit. You're also missing the point of my posts, which was to point out that you are saying Madison doesn't look like Madison, and you're flat out wrong. The examples I gave are straight up proof that they are using elements of past Scouts uniforms. As for my high horse, maybe supporting my corps is considered that, but I'd rather do that and take my issues to the proper channels that hide behind a screenname as many do on here and just ##### and do nothing to help the corps. For example, there are alums on here that do not pay alumni dues, don't assist with cooking, driving airport shuttles, unloading trucks, and countless other things, but feel that coming here and just spouting off is something productive. Furthermore, any alum that thinks that the board or the staff/admins won't listen is laughable. It's welcome, and encouraged, and for those that think going through the proper channels won't get things done, simply don't know the organization and are nothing more than a cancer to the organization.

    Simmer down sparky, just pointing out the flaws in your argument. Was this year a departure from some things, sure, but your assessment of what the Madison Scouts are is laughable if you neglect the points I made. But you keep being you, with your opinions and telling me to hush, or whatever your first comment was.

    So having a uniform with a fleur, spats, citation cords, an Eisenhower style jacket cut, gauntlets, and a show with tuba flips, the brass sword, hat bow, a fleur, and other classic Madison moments didn't look like the Madison Scouts? As an alum, I thought the number of nods to our history was done well. But I guess you know more about our traditions and the elements, such as in this show, that define the corps.
  7. Why are they still called the Bluecoats? I see no blue, nor coats.

    Whitewater!!!!
  9. 2017 PREDICTIONS!

    I've seen plenty of footage of them at all his point this season to agree. I think they'll be as high as 7, but could be as low as 10th.

    Plenty. Especially those that are comfortable and confident enough with who they are, rather than needing to hide behind an outfit that society says is masculine.

    I think you'll smile this year, spats are being used!

    That wasn't my point...

    Cowboys playing Romeo and Juliet...interesting. Although Blue Stars are doing a show called Star Crossed, with music from movie about a French cabaret, so I guess it makes sense...

    I think his intention is to be discussing current arrangers. He stated "in DCI" and not in DCI history, so I'm taking it as present arrangers.
