    I hear you. I guess I'd prefer it to be the other way around - the apprentice learning from the master, not the master assisting the apprentice.

    And I'd argue being hired into the wrong role...

    A Tone Parallel to Harlem Three Black Kings Two tremendous jazzy orchestral pieces by Duke Ellington. They've done some "big city" shows in recent years (10, 11, 15), and I'd take another one.

    Very much in line with the show announcement image they teased.

    It would appear that the guy from one of Madison's worst captions won't be directly involved in that caption at Phantom Regiment.

    Really glad the brass caption head is returning, and the new ensemble and visual guys look promising. http://regiment.org/2019-instructional-staff/

    I completely agree with this take. However, is "Picture Studies" by Adam Schoenberg considered to be "great music"? Is "A Child's Garden of Dreams" great music when only a snippet is used (to feature trombones)? I just don't want to see "we're forced to play classical music" used to excuse ineffective arranging.

    This is the most fascinating hire of this offseason. The variability in age of this staff is incredible.

    Apparently Will Pitts posted on the FB alum page some weeks ago recognizing the need to step up visually (though I'd argue that's one of several captions). Can any alums post what was said? In particular, I'm interested in how the corps has responded to the decline of recent years culminating (hopefully) in the shortcomings of 2018.

    Yeah, that's the thing. He is a total drum corps rookie. How much say will he have, and how much will he know when he's surrounded by many of the designers from 2017?

    Yeah. Overwhelming majority of designers are back.

    It's a little surprising to me that Boerma would leave the corps (whether on his own or otherwise) if they were going to be bringing back all these old schoolers. He would certainly seem to fit into the "old school but able to adapt" category.

    As recently as 2015! Aside from the lady mannequins, it was a toe tapper that finished in a solid 8th (though placement is also a function of corps around them). Add a little more aggression to the concept, and you've got a competitive old school Madison show.

    Any idea what specific years he was involved with the corps previously? I'm guessing Scott Stewart days?
