  1. And how much did DCI know before being confronted?
  2. PR seems determined to not invent itself and move on to a more competitve corps. Maybe there will be a surprise in store. Given the design team, i'm not holding my breath though.
  3. IMHO, you could not be more wrong
  4. I agree wholeheartedly. Pitts writing is too formulaic based on someone's else's writing style of years past. He is not creative at all and his music suffers from lack of creativity and invention. As someone who was in PR when Pitts was said to me, Pitts took himself way to seriously as a coverup. PR needs someone to come in and take over and kick them in the pants creatively.
  5. The days of rehashed shows are done and PR needs to stay away from that trap.
  6. Why won't they move into modern classical music. There is some great modern music to draw from.

    I would argue that Pitt's writing has serious shortcomings as well. And he does not need to be program coordinator.

    oh well, looks like another boring non-creative show for PR. I wonder if falling out of the top 12 will wake some people up???

    Not so sure about design by committee. It's simple, hire someone to design a show who has proven creativity. Pitts definitely does not. IMHO, I don't he is very good at writing music for Drum Corps either. I would bet money that if the corps went after a big name, PR would see people donating money to pay for him/her.
  10. Never let OSHA anywhere near DCI. There needs to be safety factors built into the activity but never governed by that bunch of nut jobs. And I also think tarps should be banned. Most MMs won't be as lucky and have the finesse the kid from Blue Stars had this year. he could have seriously been injured.
  11. Why the #### can't they leave drum corps alone???????
