  1. Not sure who would do it best... but it would be an incredible challenge for any corps:
  2. We lost a great friend of the marching arts this past summer - Frank Pasquarella passed away August 7, 2020. Frank Pasquerella marched the Bluecoats Drum & Bugle Corps in the 80s, and left a lasting legacy in many ways. Perhaps most poignant, Frank will forever be remembered as the original Autumn Leaves soprano soloist, a position that now holds the highest of honors among the hornline. Following that original performance of Autumn Leaves featuring Frank, the song has now become the official Corps Song of the organization. Frank marched with the Bluecoats in 1982, 84-88. Frank m
  3. Interesting! I didn't know a bunch of corps did Russian Christmas Music before Vanguard! sheesh! http://www.dcxmuseum.org/index.cfm?view=search&song=Russian%20Christmas%20Music
  4. Listing to Minnesota Public Radio I'm hearing lots of music from 80s drum corps shows -- 1986, 1987 Santa Clara 1988 Phantom 1989 Cavaliers Not including 2012 Cadets show - what were some other shows that used orchestral music associated with Christmas?
  5. did you see the research on trumpets? University of Minnesota study finds trumpet ‘riskiest’ instrument for spreading COVID-19
  6. One thing I'm doing when on interminably boring zoom calls is do a google news search for drum corps - you will often find obituaries of people who have died recently. The obituary makes a passing reference to drum and bugle corps - such as, "She loved life, family, horses and drum and bugle corps."

  8. Scott Adams mentioned this youtube "reaction" genre today - he points out how the fun of watching these videos is in observing the enjoyment of the person viewing the video for the first time. I think he is onto something - there is something deep in our human nature that allows us to enjoy something new to us when we are surrounded by others who are enjoying that musical experience.

  9. This has got some real visual possibilities - plus you could enclose electronics in the bag as well!
  10. Great discussion everyone - so in my state, for the week of July 5 - 11we have cumulative 40,163 cases and 1,490 deaths - would you calculate IFR by dividing deaths by case -- mortality rate of: 0.037 How would we calculate Infection Fatality Rate for the entire USA?
  11. At the risk of being cancelled, or having my content disabled, as Dilbert cartoonist and provocateur Scott Adams says - one thing 2020 has shown is, we suck at measuring things -- can anyone provide an objective or meaningful statistic on the infection fatality rate of c19? Do we even know? The media would have us believe that having c19 is a death sentence - equivalent to the plague or ebola - but to the best of our knowledge, do we know what percentage of people who get c19 die? I believe that the fatality rates are far higher with older (60+) and people with co-morbidities -- but HS ma
  12. Anyone know who's idea that was? It really was clever - had anything like that ever been done before?
