  1. Who said the association of drum corps with military qualities was a thing of the past!
  2. Interesting choice of name and logo (an anchor), for a community 500 miles from the ocean
  3. Of course, the whole discussion of prior corps playing Bernstein's Mass is irrelevant. NO existing DCI corps has ever done The Lion King before.
  4. My facts are inaccurate? First, if "facts" are inaccurate, then they are not actually facts. Second, since I am bored, please enlighten me as to where the historical facts do not support the above statement I made. '74 4th Brigade - NO CURRENT DCI MARCHER WAS ALIVE AT THAT TIME '74 Argonne Rebels- NO CURRENT DCI MARCHER WAS ALIVE AT THAT TIME '76 Boston Crusaders- NO CURRENT DCI MARCHER WAS ALIVE AT THAT TIME '77 Argonauts- NO CURRENT DCI MARCHER WAS ALIVE AT THAT TIME '78 Ct. Hurricanes- NO CURRENT DCI MARCHER WAS ALIVE AT THAT TIME '83 Cadets ( won their 1st DCI Title with Bernstein's " Mass " )- NO CURRENT DCI MARCHER WAS ALIVE AT THAT TIME '90 Blue Knights- NO CURRENT DCI MARCHER WAS ALIVE AT THAT TIME '93 Senators- NO CURRENT DCI MARCHER WAS ALIVE AT THAT TIME '98 Volunteers - DCI CORPS BUT NO LONGER STILL AROUND 2002 Cascades - ONLY EXCERPT FROM MASS WAS "SIMPLE SONG" 2003 Magic of Orlando- DCI CORPS BUT NO LONGER STILL AROUND 2004 Blue Knights - ONLY EXCERPT FROM MASS WAS "I GO ON" 2009 Reading Buccaneers ( won DCA playing Bernstein's " Mass " ) - NOT A DCI CORPS 2110 CT. Hurricanes - NOT A DCI CORPS [PS - as to the length of the piece, Bernstein's 1971 recording was 108 minutes]
  5. So what you are saying is ... in the entire LIFETIME of the kids currently marching Cadets, exactly TWO excerpts (Simple Song; I Go On) from a 100+ minute piece, have been played by DCI corps that are actually still around. Wow ... talk about an old warhorse being beaten to death!!! [IF that is what Cadets are performing, of course]
  6. Finals Night, August 2967 .., that would mean I get to live for 1,000 years!
  7. They gave you a bench!
  8. Enormous pretension by show designers who think an 11 minute field performance by musicians is an appropriate venue for philosophical or dramatic discourse. Get out of the way and let the music play.
  9. I think you are conflating two different motives for doing a lot of the things people are complaining about on this thread: scoring points and wowing audiences. I think there is sufficient evidence that those elements may score points. I do not think there is sufficient evidence that those things wow audiences.
  10. Clearly, DCI consulted with Stu before making these decisions.
  11. As Phoenix said, they don't target anyone, high school or otherwise. And while they do provide a scheduling model that makes it easier for high school members to march there than certain other corps, when my son marched with Surf in 2015 as a high schooler he was still one of the youngest kids there - I seem to recall the majority of the Trumpet line was already in college. I do think there are certain institutional things that stand in the way of their improvement in the standings, but that can probably be said of most corps,
  12. Received the same email. Is it so effing difficult to spell Aaron Copland's last name correctly?!?!? (with regard to C2, not Cadets).
  13. Unity would be nice. Unitards, not so much.
  14. No one seems to think twice about coming on here and criticizing another certain DCI Hall of Famer on a practically daily basis.
