What's NOT on the schedule is the Freelancers Alumni! They are performing now as pre-show entertainment and the 2016 DCA Mini Corps Silver Medalist. The show, Wayne's World, opens with the 1988 and 2009 Blue Devils classic, Happy Days Are Here Again!

A couple screaming soprano soloists joined by a mello soloist midway through the tune. Wayne would approve.

The Freelancers cool it down with Stan Kenton's Pegasus, performed by BD in 1980, 1982, and 2007.

And the soprano soloist at the end plays backfield for an extra audio effect.
