The "Music Corps Should Do" thread


Recommended Posts

Corps have done such a great job of weaving pop and hip hop into shows with other genres of music. So a couple old pop tunes that I think would be great fits for ballads.

The former has an Academy/Unchained Melody feel, while the latter is up BK's alley.

I think it's been long enough since Huawei's AI finished Schuberts 8th that it could be viable for a corps like PR. If you haven't listened to it, with a few exceptions, the AI did a pretty #### good job.

great songs that could lend themselves to some great shows

i'm actually amazed "smoke gets in your eyes" hasn't been done already. that would be a really nice alto solo, and Klesch and other great arrangers could make chorales out of almost any phrase in that song.

I watched a youtube performance of Bryce Dessner's (of The National) violin concerto. It's not the Sibelius...

But it got me going down a rock-musician-writing-classical wormhole, and this suite from There Will Be Blood came up. It's by Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead, and my local orchestra was supposed to perform it in spring 2020 before the pandemic. Some really cool drum corps-worthy themes in there...
