2015 will be 26 years since they've played Phantom of the Opera. Do you think they'll do another throwback show this year? What are your thoughts?

Probably not this year, no. 26 isn't a significant number. Plus, it seems kind of lazy IMO to do throwback shows in back to back seasons.

What, so every other season? Fiedler and company are on the fast road to make SCV irrelevant. Well, MORE irrelevant...

I don't think it's a bad idea. Last year would have been a good time to do it, on the 25th anniversary, but Scheherazade was great. Also, what's making SCV irrelevant? High drums? They're on a fast track for another championship in my opinion.

I hope not. I would like to see them doing something that hasn't been played before. The last year they performed a completely new program was 2011 (new program as in using pieces of music that they and others hadn't performed before).

I really enjoyed them that year. . I also loved their Bartok show.

Yes but rehashing a legendary show is not what anyone needs

Please make sure not to generalize your opinion to everyone else.

I'd personally love a phantom of the opera remake.

They are? Drums is one thing but they need to go outside the box to something new. They have the talent and now have the instructional staff to do this. Phantom of the Opera is not that musically exceptional.

I know several corps who would love to be "irrelevant" in 4th place! (Crossmen, Blue Knights, Pioneer, Jersey, Surf, Madarins, Blue Stars, Boston, etc, etc, etc,)
