  1. Yes! Santa Clara was there and I've read posts where you refer to those really tall hats before!
  2. That is so cool! I wish I could remember for sure. Good chance it was '78. I remember someone playing Copeland and I remember a guard with long skirts but I don't know which year those memories are from or if was my first show or subsequent years. The biggest memory is of 'feeling' the glorious sound from all the corps and I fell in love.
  3. Sioux City was where I was first introduced to drum corps. My high school band director loaded a bunch of us up into the school suburban and took us there to Morningside College. That was back in the late 70's. Glad it was great tonight!

    If I understood correctly from a session with the design team here at the Director's Academy, it was by design that they would feature female horn players at some point. As far as the ballad, it was designed to show the soft side of the beast. While those girls play the ballad, the rest of the mellos, trumpets, baritones and euphoniums go to trombone. So the low brass of trombone and tuba represent the male and the 'girl's club' obviously represent the female. So in actuality, gender DOES matter here. They actually recruited a couple of female horn players to fill the ensemble for the ballad. This is how I remember it from the session I was in this morning.

    Yes! This is the fourth time I've heard it here and I love it every time. Richard Saucedo is a genius.

    Pretty sure it would fry pretty quick. Holy moly it's hot!
  7. Lol and you weren't wrong! We're campers here. Just a bit older than the average age.
  8. I'm inside that circle! I literally cried when they played through their closer for us this morning. This picture is of the directors academy. The marching band kids will be with them this afternoon.

    One of a few names. I remember seeing them as the Garfield Cadets and as the Cadets of Bergan County.

    Couldn't help it, had a few tears watching them tonight. Tears and alot of smiling at the same time. Excellent show Cadets!

    My thoughts exactly. I attended three different corps rehearsals. I felt all three sounded much better/bigger outside than they did in Ford Field.
  12. One of the students that watched the rehearsal got to shake Matt Harloff's hand after the show last night. Student was thrilled to meet him.

    I thought the opposite. I thought the color was striking and elegant. At least from my view in the stadium I thought they were gorgeous.
  15. I brought 6 students to tonight's rehearsal. Three of them had never witnessed live corps. First hit, one of them literally cried. Audience is a little chatty at times but what a beautiful evening to hear a great corps.
