DCI World Championship Prelims - Thursday, August 8, 2019


Recommended Posts

Good but not great run from Cadets. That percussion is such a great foundation, and performers are doing well in a show with a lot of demand. A book could be written on show concept and design (and has been on DCP), so nothing to add there.

A Big Hand to kevingamin for the great Play by Play

Dear Sweet Jesus, That Crown show made me find you.    Can I get an AMEN up in here!?! That performance was a thing of beauty!!!

Premature decapitation

Sound seems to have cranked up for the Cadets. At times, it wasn’t pleasant.  

Don’t know if it’s Fathom.

Loving the Jack London quotation to start the show.

And then the entire horn line goes nuts on the intro, both visually and musically.

Full horn line on the tarp on the right front side of the field.

What a crescendo!

Did not catch the ski poles the guard uses as equipment at the start of Dance Panels.

Brass is very exposed in this section. A lot of unison attacks and releases which require great timing.
