Contributions to Innovation

Recommended Posts

Yes, Kilties were one of the first corps to take advantage of the 1978 grounding rule, and had some excellent musical/visual staging moments.  Optimists had the parachute, and one year, marched a complete line of conga drums instead of tenors.  That would get killed today.

And Canzona is a great piece of wind band literature, far more melodic in its line and flow that what we hear today.

But, at least in that era, I do feel that innovations were more elsewhere in the rankings, especially SCV, 27th, Bayonne, and Madison, as one of the original "power/blow your socks off" corps.
