    Crazy good, if you ask me. Cadets are doing exactly what they needed to do this year, and kudos to Mandarins for stepping up their game. It's been the same group at the top for so long, Mandarins, SOA etc are just what we needed right now. BD, SCV, Bloo et al should watch their rear view mirrors. I'm excited for the future, thunderous goo and unitumes notwithstanding.

    And the crowds around warmups last night showed the fans are back out, too. I was recording the hornline while you were recording the battery!

    After the Bluecoats performance in Clifton n.j. last evening, I think that it is reasonable to accept that the Cadets have a huge uphill climb to reach that level of showmanship..mind you, this from a Cadet fan for over 36 years. I don't think anyone expected them to challenge for top 5, their show seems to be conservative and is more of a vehicle to get the program back on it's feet. And it's done that very well. I've volunteered with them sporadically this spring/summer and the vibe is REALLY incredible. Kids are excited, staff and volunteers are energized, alumni are coming out of hiding. Brass book isn't a monster but is performed well...guard is doing great work, pit is killing it, and battery is really impressive. Vocals have been integrated better than last year, but are still a bit too overpowering in a few spots. I've been a Cadet homer for a long time, and this year is a breath of fresh air for me. There is a bright future, IMO.

  5. If he has ANY sense of self-preservation, he'll stay far away from the activity. Hell, he should probably sell his car, move to a new apartment, and shave his head. He is probably persona non grata wherever he goes right now
  6. My daughter is scheduled for camp this weekend. If we still decide to attend, I will be there 24/7 as well.

    If you connect some dots, you can almost see them putting the logo in there...something I've often thought they could do kinda like Crown does. Even for a second or two, the tifosi would see it...

    Are those speakers on the 10 yard lines?

    This. Listening to them yesterday down at Salem (along with the C2 gang), it's obvious that they've stepped up their game. Lots of vets and what seems to be a VERY enthusiastic team surrounding them...I'm looking forward to 2 very competitive ensembles. C2 brass in the auditorium was very impressive, even outside the circle!

    C2 is still doing some Bernstein, though. Was at camp for ensemble two weeks ago...

    For a minute I thought you said Sensimilla...which would be even more interesting.

    There will be no more praying in Allentown. The Mass has ended, go in peace.

    I was thinking the same thing...Sound of Silence ruse as opposed to the Cone of SIlence we usually get from Hopalong Brassidy.
