You might be thinking of SCV this year? 

Oh yes I did... :w00t:

Given the different uniforms year to year now, it's easy to mix everyone up. :tongue:

 

I kid, I kid

Oh man, I forgot about that! Bertrand Moren's written some cool solo/ensemble stuff for trombone. I'll check out his brass band stuff too.

Philip Sparke's "Year of the Dragon" was originally written as a brass band piece (Cadets 97).

Is it possible that the SCV speakers are placed so that Flo’s microphones don’t catch the soloists? That’s my thought.

Flo also has mics they position in front of whatever amps the corps use.

No, I'm not. Look, I'm sorry that SCV smoked whatever corps you like, but having a stage on the field is not the same thing as having giant chairs, palm trees, construction equipment, barstools, and whatever hell the else got dragged out of a TJ Maxx. I mean, seriously. Some of these corps make the field look as if a Wal-Mart truck jackknifed in the middle and they're still cleaning up the debris. 

I think SCV should win.

And I think their stages are properly described as props every bit as much as Bloo's chairs are.

I agree with you. SCV's props are fully integrated into the show in such a way that they are hardly noticeable. I don't mind others props (big chairs are cool, and that painting is off the hook) but SCV has elevated the usage of props to such a never before seen sophisticated and integrated way. The props SCV uses are as important as any other element of their show.

Exactly. Throw BAC in there too. None of the top 8 are lacking in visual demand what-so-ever.

With a line that cuts off HARD at BK (even though I'm nuts about their brass!!!!).

If so they need to move them!

Everything was great at the regionals. Come on SCV.
