  1. still holding out hope that i'll get to hear phantom or crown do a brass arrangement of this someday:
  2. ever year has a mix of tones for shows, whether you call them up, down, left, right, happy, sad, brooding, etc. love the variety.. as a military musician, i'd pay money to never hear another sousa march for as long as i live, and the 110-120 bpm box is pretty limiting for the genre
  3. First of all, this WHOLE PIECE by Lutoslawski is amazing. I'd put it up with Bartok's own Concerto for Orchestra, written just a few years earlier. From 3:15 to 3:50 in Part I is one highlight for me: and in part II, 1:41-4:30 is also dynamite to me. so many colors, and some really fun big beefy brass stuff
  4. i feel like the first and last minute of this could be amazing arranged for brass, and i assume percussion arrangers could have a lot of fun with it, too:
  5. she certainly does, and gets paid pretty well for it compared to our friends/family, lol. good for her, and good for the people it brings joy to. i'll always agree that it does nothing but help dci and the marching arts.
  6. thank goodness rational adults in the org are acknowledging there's been a problem for decades. that doesn't take being woke, just being a real human being who acknowledges that people with experiences different from their own do in fact exist.
  7. i'd personally love to see any corps run by anybody who has posted more than 3X in this thread.
  8. yeah, i've become more jaded about this than i was originally. good for her for making a buck, and good for the warm fuzzies it gives anybody who enjoys her reactions, but i question her actual enthusiasm for some of these shows for some reason, lol.
  9. nonetheless, the length of time it takes for cases to pan out is definitely something that has kept women from coming forward.
  10. probably because crazies weaponize their opinions about serious subjects to try to boost their self esteem and show their moral superiority. same with any social media discussion, really.
  11. i loved g horns for what i perceived to be greater volume and power, but there were very few corps that could produce a really nice brass sound year year with them, imo. i know that will bother some people, and that's fine. within a couple of years of the switch to b flat, i went from really loving the brass ensemble sound of maybe 4 corps per year to double that. i remember being worried about the b-flat shift sacrificing power for musicality for a bit back in 2000....until i heard the first big hit from the cadets live.
  12. okay, so scv's executive director is unhinged, something about local circuits and sponsors that connects to it in some way, and something about cadet corps. i'll add that i heard every corps is going to be required to do a 5-minute segment of West Side Story in parade block with ticks as part of a compulsory round DCI is adding starting in 2027.
