Let's Play A Game - You Can Only Go Forward


Recommended Posts

I'm curious what changes people would like to see happen to the Drum Corps activity, however I have a caveat - only comment with things that you would like to see changed that's not going back to older traditions. We all know the ideas of going back to standard uniforms, no mics, GĀ bugles, no voiceovers/electronics, etc.

What would you like to see in the activity that's never been done before?

And playing Abb or Fx bugles doesn't count.

1) Independent governing/sanctioning body. 2) Adjudication by music/artistic professionals who are independent of drum corps.

30 contras...... šŸ™‚

To all who have commented about my adjudication idea. What I suggest is to break out of the inbread snob mold that only drum corps experienced professionals are qualified to judge drum corps. Sti

That second one would definitely create a new dynamic for show design, and I think it's a good step without going all the way to "fan favorite."Ā I absolutely agree, it'd be interestingĀ having an assessment from an outside individual or group of individuals.

I can't say that I'd be too thrilled with an American Idol style adjudication system. Give me corps professionals, not Paula Abdul.Ā 

On the other hand, that may be something DCI would consider at some point unless Stu's #1 comes along.Ā

Let's just design a show called ascending the score, where the first movement has all 80 brass on contras, second on euph, third on mellos, and 4th on trumpets.
