  1. 2018 Staff Announcements (new thread)

    Mike Stevens was the Percussion Caption Head/Arranger and is now just the Percussion Arranger.
  2. Santa Clara Vanguard 2018

    Very true. Staff stability is should mean success for SCV. On Mapes/Grom. Yes they didn't arrange for Blue Stars last season but good chunk of his peeps are on the staff including the caption head. The aforementioned works with Mapes/Grom at Pulse Percussion. Again this is unnecessary wreck less speculation. I am very happy with how things have been going with SCV Percussion the 6 last seasons, but now, from top to bottom, the organization is hitting it out of the park. Good times. Also a good sign for an organization when auditions are announced early? BD has been doing so the last few seasons.
  3. Santa Clara Vanguard 2018

    God forbid if that ever happens, if it did, I see him going to The Cadets. Crown has their percussion program cookin, so I don't see a change there. In the event that would occur, watch for John Mapes and Ian Grom along with the Blue Stars percussion staff. But that said, I saw that SCV has announced their auditions already. Saw that one of their locations is in Dallas, so one has to assume the Rennicks are not going anywhere.
  4. So back on topic, then we can go back to Sports Talk I guess it's safe to assume the majority of the SCV staff is returning as they have already announced their audition dates. Also noticed that one of the percussion audition sites is in Dallas which I assume means Paul Rennick not going anywhere.
  5. And if you have some time, they tackle a beast of a piece "Mahler: 2nd Symphony The Resurrection". Crown did the intro in 2010
  6. Love that video, here is another amazing performance by the same orchestra and Dudamel. Shostakovich's 10th. I've had the privilege of seeing him conduct the L.A. Phil a few times.
  7. 2017 was an outstanding season for the organization. Very excited to see what Vanguard has in store for 2018. Hope the staff stays intact and brings home the title.
  8. SCV 2017 - 50 Years of Class

    Exactly. Couldn't say it better myself. Very happy to see Vanguard in contention again. Here's to titles in the foreseeable future.
  9. Cadets 2018

    My understanding from what I heard, is that Tom Aungst would take over the reins from Hop down the line, hence why he came back.
  10. 2017 Boston Crusaders

    Just wanted to say, Thank you BAC, hell of a show!!
  11. DCI high percussion through the years?

  12. Their drumline was incredible as well
  13. Some closing thoughts. So happy for the Vanguard organization. It seems they are in a good place and hope that this will be an era of being contenders and hopefully titles for the foreseeable future. Also, SCVC wins Open Class and the Guard with their first World Class title I believe. SCV, this season's show will be in my top 5, I love it. I think the other big story of the year is BAC, shows having super staff matters. It's not an accident their Guard goes from 12th to 3rd, concurrently Crown's Guard goes from 3rd to 6th. Speaking of BAC, love their show as well. They had the best use of vocals. Like I said before, Mixing+Arrangement+Vocalist equals success. I agree with others that it seems per results that staging is taking more importance than drill. Hope this will not continue or this will hurt the activity in the long run. I wonder what ramifications the mic issue will have over the winter in terms of design and/or rule changes if any. Crown put all the chips in for having vocals, it hurt them. How? Depends on how one looks at it, but to have it happen at finals, still stinks whether it affected the score or not. The Vanguard Percussion program is firing on all cylinders and this is now their 14th title. I think the most in DCI just pass BD. I was on the fence with the whole uni/costume deal. I get it now. Never thought the Scouts show would tip me over. I started a thread on this. I like what Cavies did for the retreat. Hope other corps follow suit and come out with some semblance of a traditional Uniform. Interesting to see Bluecoats not score well in percussion, yet Crown scored well. Glad to see them do well. Hope Bluecoats bounce back next season. Scouts, BK, Cavies, Crossmen shows fascinating me, well done. Crown Brass, Bravo. To Crown overall. You had the best 1st half of show. I'll leave it at that. Cadets - Just couldn't get into the show Phantom. Saw them live in California. Love how they improved this season. Bluecoats - Seem like a repeat of last season. But ridiculously talented corps from top to bottom. Blue Stars. I need more viewings. Congrats to BD.
  14. As soon as I heard the score.
