  1. November 25, 2014. The Skyliners Drum & Bugle Corps’ Open House this past weekend was a tremendous success, and an exciting beginning for the corps’ 70th Anniversary season. After the Skyliners’ return to the field of DCA Competition last season, the corps is looking forward to continued growth and more opportunities to entertain its stalwart fans and alumni. Scott Carey, Brass Caption Head, assisted by Ryan Lamoreux, Assistant Brass Caption Head, led the brass instruction, supported by the 2015 Brass Staff. After warm-ups, the horn line worked through the beginning of “It Better
  2. With Open Houses starting this weekend for DCA corps, you may still be on the fence about which ones to visit. So..."Why March Centurions?" Here are just a few answers... *Low tuition cost - less than $150 for the season (not including ancillary items - i.e. meals, hotel for championships etc). *Conservative rehearsal schedule - you can participate and still have time for other summer activities. *Top notch staff - the combined experience of the instructional staff is well over 100 years. *Conveniently located along the CT and MA border. *We are a 501©3 non-profit - your participation counts

  4. The Vanguard Cadets Brass and Visual Staff will be hosting their annual clinic/workshops on November 16th & 23rd for all local prospective or returning brass players looking to audition for either the Santa Clara Vanguard and/or Vanguard Cadets this December. The schedule for both days is 9-12:00PM visual time, with 12-1:00PM lunch on your own, and the 1-4pm brass. Trumpet players will need to bring their own instruments as none will be provided and it is recommended that other instruments do so as well. We will though have some mellos, baritones, euphoniums and tubas on hand but you will
  5. The Skyliners’ 2015 Production is aptly named “Whatever Lola Wants”. The corps is well known for performing an exciting, entertaining, and crowd pleasing show, and their 70th Anniversary production will continue that tradition. Their opener, “Meglio Stasera” (known in English as “It Had Better Be Tonight”) is a 1963 pop song with music by Henry Mancini, Italian lyrics by Franco Migliacci and English lyrics by Johnny Mercer. It was composed for the 1963 film ‘The Pink Panther’, where it was performed by Fran Jeffries. The Skyliners have chosen Michael Bublé’s treatment of this song, which
  6. Hello there, I am a new member on the forum. I hope I am posting this in the right area. Hopefully a forum moderator can help me if I am posting this in the incorrect part of the forum. I am 17, and from Southern California. I have been playing sax for 8 years and just picked up baritone at the start of this summer. I really, really want to make Vanguard Cadets for the 2015 season and was looking for some tips and help to achieve my goal. First of all, is it a reasonable goal to audition for Vanguard Cadets with only a few months' experience on the horn? Also, I am aware that I am posting

  11. So I'm in the market for a new tuba mouthpiece. I don't want to spend insane amounts of $ on it, but I want it to be of decent quality. What would you recommend? I play on a Bach 18 right now, but I feel like It restricts my range. I was thinking about getting a Helleberg, but I've heard that there are better mouthpieces out there. I don't have any way to try them out, so what is your personal recommendation for all around use?
  12. I'm 15 and about to audition for my first corps the Oregon Crusaders on trumpet, and was wondering, what should I expect at the audition and how hard is it to make the corps?

  14. Currently in the market for a new trumpet I can play through the rest of high school and college and was wondering how good are the SB12's and would it be good for concert season and orchestral settings as well as marching season? I'm coming from a Yamaha YTR 2335 which is a student model horn.
