  2. Favorite Pieces

    I love The Light Eternal!!! We played it when I was in 8th grade. I got to play the brake drum solo! If there was one thing I could play, I would definitely pick Reflections of Earth
  3. Scores for 10/24

    Due to certain 'things' we were unable to film all the bands at ISU. Mr Video said they should be posting video's. However, we were able to record some video's of Finals, and they are located at www.youtube.com/quickdrawfilmsThanks for those!
  4. Scores for 10/24

    I saw that at U of I at just the right angle. I would say, but I would probably be mysteriously killed after... :$

  6. Specific to U of I DO sit in the right section of the stadium. "If nobody else is there, you're in the wrong spot." Anyone who was there knows what i'm talking about =D
  7. Scores for 10/17

    I enjoyed watching all bands I saw. I still contend that Hersey had a much cleaner and accurate show drill wise in comparison to Prospect. I would say Prospect appeared to have a more demanding drill, but it wasn't performed as well as Hersey's drill. I saw both shows from the Press Box and from that angle there were many spots in Prospects show that they were halted in a box or diags and there were numerous members way out of the form. Now in saying that I still think Prospect had a great show, it just wasn't what we are used to seeing from Prospect as far as drill accuracy. I think its already been said but it is impossible to compare Macomb and the A and AA bands scores because it was a completely different judging panel (with exception to the caption awards). As far as the competition as a whole I thought it was a shame how they rushed the awards, it really ruined the ability for the kids to enjoy their accomplishments. I agree, they were both very high quality shows. However, Prospect just wasn't as clean (drill wise) as I remember them from last year. Props to Hersey, you deserved it.
  8. Scores for 10/17

    Monticello did great yesterday! That's the first time that we have placed in field (according to our director) in about twenty years! Congratulations to our drum majors too for receiving first place in field! And congratulations to all of the other bands, Class B had a really quality crop this year and many of the scores were extreeeeeeemely close!
  9. Shows for 10/17

    I received a text from a friend that works for BOA saying that William Mason was considering withdrawing from the St. Louis Super Regional. They had 60 kids (out of about 200) out yesterday, and 800 out of a school of 3,000 kids were sick.Wow! That is a TON! I think the most we've had out recently is about 70, we have an enrollment of about 550.
