Back to updates.. Most of SCV brass staff fired in favor of new Crown staff with the Van Doren team. Prior to this, Brass Caption Head leaving for another West Coast gig. Staff going all different directions, breaking up one of best brass teams in the activity. Hope it works out for them. Shaw leaving may haunt them moving forward. 

Cadets with major overhaul, bringing in big name team across the board. Huge upswing in brass and percussion.

Phantom trying to bring back magic with Shaw/Sage/etc.

Blue Devils adding a key brass position to already great team for first time in a number of years.

Other Blue teams making changes of their own.

Entire activity will feel shift of theses changes of 2020! Fun time of year!! 

You have Confirmation that it was a Firing? Or was Chip Crotts lured away by BD and JD Being lured by Phantom?

Where is the connection from Gaines/ Toth to Van Doren? Why him of all possibilities? Did Gaines write for Cedar Park? or have they collaborated before with one of the many different schools they both write for?

Why in the world would Vanguard change brass staff?! Must have been major ego and personality clashes.

What happens to Crown yet again?

My understanding is they made an arranger change and said person wanted to bring their own team in. Happens all the time. Sounds more like some of the younger Crown folks. Much like when several went to Cavies a few years back. 

Not sure the need to blow it up after championship season a year ago, but hindsight is... 2020. BD and Phantom getting major staff additions with these folks and it will be interesting to see if these changes for SCV can produce similar results as last 3 years. Tall order for sure with first time arranger and caption head. (Great pedigree obviously) Just one of a few fun storylines for next season!

Head scratcher. SCV wins an Ott for the first time in 30ish years and then cleans house two seasons later? I just hope the guys coming in are worthy. 

Was Shaw asked to leave? Or did he move on his own accord? Was SCV getting rid of him because of the #metoo allegations?

1. From what I'm hearing, someone is coming "home."  

2. Hearing names and I'm intrigued.  

Always an interesting time of year in the activity.

I believe there was a cause and effect.

The Crownies won’t be happy that’s for sure! We heard the whining about Boston! Time to get out the hankies.

Odds that 2020 Phantom has a long-### mello sustain?
