DCI World Championship Semis - Friday, August 9, 2019


Recommended Posts

I do not care for original music on the field, although Gold this year is one of the better offerings I've seen in awhile in that happily-fading trend.

But. Watching four performances of it in a week is enough to make it quite uninteresting on the fourth read, whereas I'm already anticipating listening to Legends & Spartans' for the fourth time.

Because I checked out a bit, I switched to High Cam and counted; looks like Gold is ever so slightly shy of a full corps at 151. A full 80 member brassline. Love that. It looks like guard is the only (slightly) smaller-than-traditional section at 28 members. 

Makes me wonder if they're the biggest OC corps?? Legends looks pretty darn close to a full 154 the last few seasons but I've never counted.

I mean, if you’re not moved to tears seeing these kids smiling and excited after finishing their show... a current fourth place show... then you just don’t get it. Winning is cool, but getting a stand

It’s 11. I think I’m going to shut it down. I have Rhythm in BLUE tomorrow morning so a good night’s sleep would be a good thing. I AM covering Finals tomorrow, however, so we’ll get together one

Well, whoever wins tomorrow night should put an * behind it because Star of Indiana isn’t here this year.  

Oh, and some of the city scape panels in the back field have the building “lights” “turned on” to spell H-A-P-P-I-N-E-S-S.

The music is becoming triumphant as the corps is finally finding their happiness. We’ve been finding it through them this entire show.

I get a sense that Brandt Crocker doesn't care for single syllable corps names. He could so "welcome to the field, Gooooooooooollllllllrrr4rrrrrdghhcfghhddddd!" But instead chooses "Gold."

I want him to announce it like the prospectors in the Bugs Bunny cartoons.

Trumpet quartet nails their notes, then the horn line nails us!

The spelling of "HAPPINESS" on the skyline backdrops of Gold's show is nicely subtle.

Was that Gold's first time in semi's?  They looked pretty happy at the end.  🙂

Gold has a very bright future if they continue this path!  Wonderful job this season.
