I wonder how music city will do this summer. There improvement since 2009 has been a little unpredictable, such as doubling in size from 2010 to 2011, and not improving as much as expected. They have always been my favorite open class corps, and I look forward to what they put on the field this year

City Sound has no show title yet, however our show includes New Orleans Themed jazz. Also: anyone looking to march a corps this summer but isnt sure where to go, Come to City Sound. we still have plenty of hornline positions open, and have spots to be filled! We practice every sunday (besides Easter) at Cal State Dominguez Hills, parking lot 4A.

Well, I hadn't previously seen any formal announcement by Raiders, so I didn't want to post this info myself, but since it was published in the May edition of Drum Corps World, I guess it's now public knowledge:

  • October, by Eric Whitacre
  • Month of the Cold Moon (January, 1839), by Roland Barrett
  • Into the Joy of Spring, by James Swearingen
  • Kingfishers Catch Fire, but John Mackay

Some great shows this year, particularly excited about 7th Regiment. If I had to pick a favorite Open Class corps, would probably be them.

I just noticed that Coastal Surge announced their show title more than a month ago: "A Southern Saga: Scenes from Charles Towne Harbor".
