My understanding is a year or two wait AFTER teaching until one could judge again.

Agree. I think the choir diminishes the horn line instead of complementing it.  I hesitated to say that lest I get jumped on by the thread defenders.  Many of the most difficult passages played by the horn line in '83 are sung by the choir this year. 

There's a bit of both in this years production if we are being honest

i certainly would have used much less voice

Would like to see:

1. Cadets at a 92 tonight.

2. Beat Boston.

3. Have some caption movement upward i.e.:

   Percussion, VP, GE (not in that particular order). 

4. We need momentum going into INDY. It's Allentown already!

I've always pictured an On The Waterfront production for Cadets in a black and white color scheme (like the movie) with pops of orange and red during specific parts

Massive scrim backgrounds of the NYC waterfront - old B&W photos blown up or  stylized and mounted on scaffolding. As big as possible to give the production a very dramatic and theatrical feel. These would be stationary but turn around during the "ballad" and be all white with couple levels male/female guard members could couple dance against the big white background

Corps could be in black and white as well - guard maybe in gray. Story line non literal but have a boy/girl kind of playoff ala WSS - from different sides of the tracks. 

It's a very dramatic piece of music with long percussive sections - a larger brass line is required IMO and a full size battery and pit. So maybe 80 brass...

my understanding is after teaching/designing at a corps one must wait an "off season" prior to being eligible to judge
