  1. Star also played Walton in 1990, admittedly with a more specific theme (Belshazzar's Feast), but that's still quite a lot of Walton in a few years.
  2. BAC jumped 6 places from 2016-2017, PC 6 places from 2018-19, and Spirit 5 places from 2017-18. Not saying that Scouts will in 2020, but big leaps have happened in the last few years.
  3. Interesting, I thought that one might get a decent amount of support.
  4. What happened with Michael Martin's amplification proposal? Was it withdrawn? I don't see any information about a vote.
  5. Not entirely on the topic of woodwinds, but I'm confused about Kathy Black's comment on guitars — haven't several corps used acoustic guitars recently? Southwind in 2018 comes to mind.
  6. Woodwind player (clarinet and sax) here — completely agree. I don't feel like I'm lacking in "life-enriching" musical summer opportunities because DCI is made up of drum corps instead of marching bands, even though I'd be eligible to march for a year if the proposal passed. I wouldn't want a snare drummer to join my woodwind quintet; there's no reason I should be playing a woodwind instrument in a brass and percussion ensemble.

  7. That's true, I guess we'll just have to wait and see! Nothing's certain yet. I, for one, hope that Pitts stays with the organization in some capacity while Shaw takes over as brass arranger.
  8. Right, as far as I know. It doesn't seem to be too much of a stretch though; if Mike Jackson leaves BK (which is rumored) then Mandarins are likely the only other corps in a similar competitive tier looking for a new percussion director.
  9. JD Shaw and Chip Crotts are no longer at SCV (rumored that Shaw is returning to Phantom and Crotts is headed to BD but neither of those things have been announced yet). The Van Dorens (Donnie, Evan, and Katie) are joining SCV's staff as brass consultant, brass arranger, and assistant brass caption manager respectively, and Mark Nichols is stepping into the role of caption manager that Crotts filled this past year. BAC's entire design team and group of caption heads is staying in Boston for 2020. Most of Cadets' design staff and caption heads are new, including Jay Bocook as brass arr
