Next on the field is the Connecticut Hurricanes from Seymour, Connecticut. Competing in Open Class, their 2018 program is entitled "Clash at Olympus" and consists of Original Music.

Usually I'm not a fan of original music but I'm hooked. But horn line is reminding me of their sound in 75 when I became a Hurrcs fan

 Color guard uniforms are incredible, like a living Picasso painting.

Oh, that tuba line on The Canyon. I was worried when I saw this on the rep, but it's working for me really well.

Bush looks and sounds really good to start. Great jazz running across the field by the trumpets as the drum line has a feature.

This feels like a Bush show. I'm really enjoying it so far.

Nice segue into Nature Boy.  Trumpet and trombone soloists featured on top of props which reveal portions of Picasso's work. Looks great.

And from Nature Boy into El Tango de Roxanne from Moulin Rouge. Great arranging in this show.

Some of the pit members set up around a mic and clap into it flamenco style. Percussion feature is full of energy and passion. This must be the Cubism section as the guard is breaking out orange, yellow, and blue cubes.
