Wow.  Just wow.  It was great to see the 2018 DCI Champions in pre-season training.    Just some general thoughts so I don’t share things I’m not supposed to.  

1... I just kept smiling. The show checks all the boxes for me.   

2...the cymbal line gives me life. 

3...I am not a drummer.  At all.  But the battery moves very well.  Sound very clean (to me).  Exudes power and energy.    

4...staging.  I want to see this in uniform.  With show flags. And all the other bells and whistles. July 7th can’t get here soon enough. Even without all that, I bought what the show announcement was selling All the programmed moments make so much sense and just flow within the music rather than feeling like a forced staging for the sake of just having the moment  

5...the power behind the horn line is freightening.  The delicate moments pull you in.   And as a low brass player, I was enthralled by the Mello line. Didn’t see that coming. Hahahahaha.      

  And The ballad  ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

 

There are a whole bunch more fun and exciting and surprising and unexpected  things happening in this show   But I don’t feel it’s my place to share the details

    If you get a chance, go see them!!!!!   I held my breath the last 3 minutes of the show   

Thanks to the corps and the volunteers and all involved for their hospitality and warm welcomes    

If this is the direction the corps keep moving, the future will be golden for many years to come   

 

I did buy a ticket for BD Family Day tomorrow night.  So it will be nice to see BD since they aren’t coming up the PNW way this year.    

Nailed it!   LOL.   

What an amazing and magical season. Thanks to the MM and the staff and the volunteers and everyone involved.

Last year was such an incredible year for the vanguard organization but this year was even sweeter - congratulations on championships in both the world and open classes! As a vanguard fan, what an amazing summer - so proud to see them return to the top of the podium! To all the performers, corps staff, designers, support crew, volunteers, and countless others who contributed...thank you for all your blood, sweat, and tears. Such an accomplishment that is your's forever! Congratulations!!

one of my favorite shows ever.

gives me faith that great music can still be a primary emphasis for winning shows despite the WGI-ification of everything else. 

can't wait to see what they come up with next year, because this just feels like the beginning
