  1. Indeed! I also find myself humming/singing/grooving to the tuba(contra ) portion of the dance piece. My daughter just looks at me and I know any explanation (with or without video support) will do nothing to change her opinion of her father's actions...

    Scv - a new era?

    ...and I'd wager many of us would trade places with them in a heartbeat...
  3. Have SWriverstone consult with each corps regarding their show's musical bona fides?
  4. @SWriverstone, "I have a BM degree from Juilliard—which doesn't make me more knowledgeable than anyone else—it simply certifies that I'm very knowledgeable about music—and what distinguishes good music from bad music." So how do the underlined, italicized, and bolded sections of this singular sentence establish anything about you at all, other than you have an (incredibly detailed) opinion of their show? Every other bolded section of your OP represents further delineation of your opinion. Based on this and other posts related to SCV 2018, others seem to agree, a lot of others seem to disagree. I'm sure you'll be providing similar detailed posts on the remainder of the top 12. Looking forward to them.
  5. I’m so excited and all I’m doing is reading posts!
  6. Oh come on 27, only sometimes? Heh...I guess I should have clarified “love” in the classic/literal sense and not the more common “love” in the roll eyes / laughing tear eyes sense... ;) posted from the DrumScorps app
  7. I’d like to throw out a BIG thank you to everyone watching live and on Flo for providing such a pleasant, enthusiastic, and friendly account of tonight’s show. Sometimes, you really have to love this place... posted from the DrumScorps app

  10. Would this approach be considered “innovative”?
  11. Not sure how many of you have already run across this, but I just did and thought I'd share - a pretty good quality audio recording: Audio only - Enjoy! I like it because you can pick up so many nuances/interactions within the writing...
