I’m not sure the concept is strong at all. I’ve heard the deep analysis and I just don’t get it. 

I haven't seen the show yet. However, I listened to the program coordinator discuss the theme in a couple interviews, and I don't think theme was well articulated at all. And while I'm giddy about "mathematics in nature" inspired drill, its relation to the theme seemed like a stretch.

Folks I went back and watched last night's top 6 again and I must say the judges made a statement to Crown that hard drill and their style is not appreciated nor, will it be rewarded now and into the

I had the pleasure of seeing Crown rehearse tonight in Lexington, KY including a full run through.  TheY sound great- lots of impact.  Good blend of new and old school drum corps, lots of drill, minim

I've always felt 2009 was their best total design - the guard wasn't quite where it was in 13-16 but the total package show design was incredible; perhaps one of the best package designs ever Oth

Look up pictures of sacred geometry and tell me you don't see it in the drill.

Note in my post that I didn't say that Crown's drill didn't have elements inspired by the golden ratio or a Fibonacci spiral. I said "its relation to the theme seemed like a stretch." At least in how it was discussed by the program coordinator.

Another nice day for rehearsal in an excellent stadium. I am sure they are making the most of it. Jeff Sacktig posted a video on FB of Crown playing Gabriels Oboe in honor of Kelly Wolner. Kelly played Mellophone in the Cadets in the mid 80s (and has a couple of rings as a result). She has been putting up a heroic fight against cancer. It was really touching to see the corps take the time to perform just for her and for Jeff to make it happen. One thing I love about Crown... always a class act.

Awesome!!

Not exactly a stretch to me. The show is about sacred geometry, which is all around us if you look beneath the surface. It's in the drill and the props, beneath the surface of what seems like just a general good drum corps show.

Okay.

The interviews I saw with the program coordinator did not suggest that "the show is about sacred geometry." As I mentioned earlier, I didn't find the concept of "beneath the surface" well articulated at all. That I didn't find it well articulated doesn't suggest that Crown doesn't have a "general good drum corps show," as it may be that.

Nevermind, you're not understanding what I'm saying. You're taking it as I'm saying you said this and that and I'm not. 🤦🏻🤦🏻🤦🏻

You’re clearly not reading the responses either.

You’re saying the show is about “this!” Yes, fine. We get that. They are saying that message was not communicated well in the interview they saw with the show coordinator.

Man it’s really too bad Crown show doesn’t have a deep compelling message like a Beatles medley or a show about a kid on stilts lol

Some things just translate to the field better than others. All kidding aside though, math is not a theme I’m likely to enjoy in any kind of medium.
