  1. It's almost May. Season starts in 8 weeks. So I'd hope so.
  2. Oh true.
  3. Yeah seriously. It's been "soon" or "in a couple weeks" for like almost 2 months now. Kinda annoying. But I guess it works because we've all been talking about it and creating speculation But now it's April. It's time. Give us SOMETHING. A title. Repertoire. A picture with hidden meaning. Anything.
  4. How long was he at SCV? Cadets colorguard has kinda been their Achilles heel the past couple years. Would be awesome to see that caption competitive amongst the elite again
  5. Cadets 2007. A monster show with no ballad
  6. The huge ### snow cone at Allentown More generally though, I want to see how corps will respond in a post-Downside Up world
  7. Assuming we have guessed correctly with the music (Chichester Pslams), what do you think the show title would be? Just MASS? Or something else Trying to generate some speculation
  8. Im going to guess they will insert an abundance of color this year. For most of last season...the show might as well been titled 50 Shades of Bleh
  9. Makes sense. Most staff members are involved in the high school level. So I'm sure when they adjudicate 100 bands playing the same song it's exhausting. I guess I missed the years when it was extremely popular.
  10. Sounds like a challenge that would be greatly rewarded. Crown would be able to pull it off. And some other elite corps. I could be wrong, but I can't recall any top corps playing his work. And if October is over played, what does that make Simple Gifts, Pines of Rome, Medea.....
  11. Haha, this thread from 2007 even pointed out the similarities between the two
  12. Everything he does is lush. And the subtle use of dissonance is goosebump city. His piece "October" would be a really cool ballad. Some parts just scream drum corps imo
  13. A few years ago, Hopkins asked the general public for show ideas/music selections. One of the ideas I included in my email was Eric Whitacre's work and his virtual choirs. Naturally, I was intrigued when it was announced Cadets were fielding a choir this season haha. (Of course, all signs now seem to be pointing to Bernstein) But yeah, Whitacre is incredible
  14. For me it boils down to this: I don't want the staff to feel they need to choose a show that appeals to the uniform (i.e. Toy Souldier). Rather, have the uniform reflect the show. But yeah I guess we'll find out soon enough what they've come up with. Hopefully it's good so this forum doesn't explode. And I agree...all eyes will be on Bluecoats to see if they continue with the costuming
  15. I prefer the normal colors. It was a mistake to go to black in my opinion. Makes the drill appear less impressive. However, I see no problem with an updated design that would reflect show theme more appropriately. I know current Cadets marching members that have expressed the same opinion.
