    Best Reprise Closer?

    It took a few days for it to occur to me, but I'm kind of partial to the reprise of Concerto in F from Garfield 82.

    Best Reprise Closer?

    Star 1985 did a reprise of "When You Wish Upon a Star" . . . good, but PR 2003 is really in a class by itself.
  4. Saw them in Birmingham--similar to the Mandarins, they had a great show idea, and sold the hell out of it. Incredible energy. On top of that, one of the marimba players is the son of an old college friend.

    Best Baritone solos or features

    The crazy contra solo was in 1980. "Open Wide"?

    Best Baritone solos or features

    Wasn't there a good bari solo in 27th Lancer's 1981 Niner-Two?

    SCV's show was an epic musical fail.

    OK, thanks for the info. I was under the impression the judges saw the shows on a more regular basis. And just so we're clear, I am not implying any sort of dissatisfaction regarding SCVs show. Yes, I'm not familiar with any of the music, but it is growing on me. And the musicianship on display was unreal.

    Here is where the disconnect is, I think. While many people only see the show a few times at most, the corps are programming for the judges, who see the show time after time after time. As a result, shows have a tendency to overwhelm on first viewing.

    Scv - a new era?

    Yeah, there were times during the show when I thought "Would it have killed them to wear the classic unis and get a little more color out there?" :)

    Mandarins 2018

    When their scores were announced, I was delighted to see MMs from the corps on either side reaching out to congratulate them. Saw them in Birmingham, and everyone there was won over by their performance and energy.
  12. OK, Just watched SCV's championship run. First time I've seen their show this season. I'm not entirely sure how all that movement represented Babylon. I'm not sure I really care. That is one of the most stunning displays of musicianship I've ever seen. Absolutely breathtaking. Vanguard, congrats on a championship show for the ages.
  13. Just based on the snippets, I'd go 1. SCV 2. BLOO 3. BD
  14. no sound on the score feed.
