BD won drums tonight but the Sanford stayed home with SCV. 

That's right

This is the second time we’ve heard Hurt tonight. This one, however, is based off the Eric Whitacre choral arrangement. I personally think this is much more suited for the brass choir which drum corps provides, and the Blue Knights do incredible justice to it.

 

This is brilliant!

I think it's a lease arrangement actually.

BD takes the big toy home

To be clear, I meant the last three nights. All the "finals." None of those nights should have placed lower than 3rd. I would apply, but it doesn't pay well enough to leave my current job.

Their brass placements have been consistent all season long. Like it or not, that’s how dci scoring works. It’s progressive. One night doesn’t stand on its own.

Looking at the recap.  

Bluecoats actually chopped their visual deficit in half.  Way closer tonight.  

Music was about where it was, though BD won percussion.  

But BD closed the gap enough in GE to do it.  Just like 2015.  Their shows always come together on finals night like that.  Well deserved.  

In this situation, I think the winning points are everywhere and nowhere at the same time.  These groups were scoring all around each other for weeks... often pulling subtly different caption margins each night.

Ultra competitive (with pretty high scores there at the end as well)... Unusual for this to happen, especially in spots 1-2.

I don't see a lot of comments on Vanguard Achievements not only they won Sanford but they were the only Defending champs to have come back to win a medal the year after winning gold, in how long 2008 to 2009 phantom, 2011 to 2012 Cadets ect................. Fill the blanks. Congrats SCV on breaking that trend.

Here is Jeff Prosperie's biography.

http://www.innovativepercussion.com/artists/jeff_prosperie

Jeff Prosperie arrived to the West Point Band as a member of the Legendary Hellcats in December of 2006, and currently serves as both the Section Leader and Principal Drummer of the Percussion Section. Jeff is a World Snare Drum Champion and the first and only individual to capture the “triple crown” of solo competition (DCI, PAS, DCA). In addition to his duties as a Hellcat he also performs on occasion with the West Point percussion ensemble, steel band, and concert band. Jeff recently served as the percussion arranger/instructor for the nationally televised Army All-American High School Marching Band. Prior to these positions he served as Director of Percussion Studies at the University of Louisiana-Lafayette, Principal Percussion with the Baton Rouge Symphony, and as the percussion designer/caption-head for the World Champion Phantom Regiment Drum and Bugle corps of Rockford, Illinois. He actively serves as a championship level adjudicator for DCI and WGI and as a marching percussion committee member for PAS. Jeff earned his B.M.Ed from LSU, his MM from The University of North Texas, and has completed all course work for the DMA from UNT. Jeff has performed, presented clinics, and adjudicated throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, and Japan as well as PASIC, TMEA, TBA, and The Mid-West Band and Orchestra Convention. Jeff’s compositions and solo performances can be seen in his book/DVD “Aptitude- A Conversation in snare soloing” published by Drop 6. This publication received the very rare rating of a perfect “10” from Modern Drummer Magazine declaring it a classic. Jeff can also be seen as a featured artist on the recent DVD “The Rudiment Project” by the Percussive Arts Society as well as several performances on YouTube and downloadable apps with DrumGuru.com. Jeff is a performing artist/clinician for Pearl/Adams, Sabian, Innovative Percussion, and Evans.

How can SCV win the Fred Sanford award for percussion and yet Blue Devils have a higher score? He was all over the field in every corps way tonight. I just find the scores don't match the results.
