Certainly helps me narrow down and identify some of the music I've heard this Spring.

Name and composers, definitely not "nothing".

The last couple of years, upon the show announcements from the Cavaliers, I had thought it would be a flop.

I thought Propaganda was gonna be a flop. Boy was I wrong. And then last year they jumped BCoats. 

It would not surprise me one bit to see Cavaliers win a bronze medal. This staff really seems to know how to put on a show. No reason they can't beat the Coats again and also Crown.

I think BD and SCV are here to stay in the top 2. So 3rd is a possibility.

 

We'll see if they can make something great 3 years in a row.

Although a concept like this.....seems Blue Devil-ish. 

 

Something artsy coming from The Cavs.....this could be interesting!!!

Mr. Bungle has a ton of great music that would be interesting (albeit difficult) to arrange for the field. Their song Retrovertigo will make a FANTASTIC ballad, assuming that's part of the show.

It's a beautiful song (IMO), but the lyrics are dark and the music video is... uh, pretty twisted (this is par for the course with Bungle). Content warning: simulated drug and alcohol use, adult scenes, implied violence.

Interesting. Last fall, the Avon (IN) high school marching band also played Maslanka's Symphony No. 4 (and finished third in Grand Nationals). And this year, besides Surf, the Reading Buccaneers in DCA are playing this piece.
