Hey guys. I usually stay clear of this stuff and I appreciate those of you that understand my position. I'm basically going to tell you what has already been said on here. There are some smart pe

I have a high school senior who auditioned for the corps.  He got a callback (woo!) but did not get a spot... too young and inexperienced, but they liked him and said they'd give his name to some othe

For me...

i wonder wonder who wrote the book of love

 

 

And I remember the melody.  But it was actually two "wonders" and two "whos".

And why did they call themselves "The Monotones"?  They were anything but monotone!

Back to your regularly scheduled argument.

I'm wondering how new Yamaha horns demonstrates the "edge of the abyss" talk associated with separating from YEA! a couple of weeks back.

I've heard of their financial "challenges" catching up to them from years past, but this is confirmation that, at least, their relationship with Yamaha is in good stead.

Yes, the brass was playing on brand new Yamaha horns. New pit and battery equipment coming soon.

Do they still have euphoniums?  I love hearing that voice!  I mean, that SOUND.  Not voice.

Yea, but just like leasing a car, the residual value of the old horns doesn't come close to the purchase price of the new ones.

It's entirely possible that Yamaha has underwritten (aka: gifted) the new horns but, even still, Yamaha is no dummy company; I don't think they would extend such benefits if the Cadets weren't worth the risk or able to generate new sales for Yamaha.

the Cadet name, all other documented issues aside, has a new lease on life in many places just because of the changes that have happened in the last almost 2 years.
