Quick drum feature after the opening statement.

Guard now in their regular outfits, sparkling and shimmering blue, very oceanic.

Truly the most well-put-together pioneer show i've seen in the ten years or so I've been watching drum corps. much, much more detail and flow than we ever see from the corps. Great hornlike that occasionally overplayed itself, but also brought some real moments of power. Burning of Joan at the stake during Adagio for Strings was my first big chills moment of the day. And that VOCALIST, Jesus. Top notch quality. Perfection. And she really just added some frosting onto the lovely brass cake, didn't offer the backbone to the music at any point. It was all so well done.

It's a shame that with all of that improvement, I really can't imagine them coming anywhere close to knocking off Genesis, which is what they would need to do to break into Semis. I would place them around Music City & 7th Regiment. But that's more a testament to the rapid growth of other groups around them. Maybe we'll see some solid retention and numbers bump after this more-successful season for them!

Mellophone quartet playing a very subdued Under the Sea. Now joined by a low brass quartet.

The weird sonar beat sound kind of ruins the effect of the brass playing so quiet and gentle.

Sabers up front, joined by flags of shades ranging from white to dark blue.

Thunder and rain effect when the center saber catches his toss. Very effective.

Drum solo coming out of Under the Sea. Snares first, then tenors.
