Phantom-"On Air" I've heard rumblings that this show will include - 1000 Airplanes on the Roof (Philip Glass) and The Firebird (Igor Stravinsky).

 

if this happens, title goes to Phantom.

That might be a little premature.

word from Hoppy's blog is the Cadets will not use amplified voice this season.

 

"1000 Airplanes on the Roof"...interesting if true...Esperanza did that in 2004. (obviously in my mind Phantom would do a much better version, even if I don't remember how E played it)

 

word from Phantom Regiment camp is they had 700-1000 auditionees

PR almost always reads at least one show mvt in november, on top of elsa's. so he know, phantom just doesn't allow members and potentials to post on public forums, like here or drum corps planet, b/c as anyone who hangs out here much knows, even the smallest comment can be misinterpreted and blow up into some huge deal and PR doesn't want that reflecting on the corp.

 

but that was under pat, i don't know about under the new managment.

LWCMKtrumpet06:

I think I know how you feel. I hate knowing things, like what a show is, and not being allowed to tell it yet. WHY DO THEY TAKE SO LONG TO ANNOUNCE THINGS!! haha.

I'm about as excited for the offical announcement as I was last year when I'd giggle whenever I'd hear Beethoven's 5th.

1000 Airplanes on the Roof.............

 

Now that is a departure for Phantom, if that is their show. But they normalize it with Firebird, which I know is going to just blow the socks off everyone who hears it.

 

Again - all hearsay - if this is really the show for Phantom.

Firebird? Don't they realize that every marching band in Illinois just did it?

 

I really think it's not fair to the Cavvies to say, based solely on their show concept, that they will have an off year. It's a crazy concept, but you gotta give them points for ballsiness. It's such a rediculous idea for the most successful corps of this decade to do, that I think they can make it work. Not saying first, but I'm saying it should be a arn good show. Especially if they do "We Didn't Start the Fire"

Remember that this is the same corps that won 95', and turned around to absolutely ruin Aaron Copeland music the next year.

 

However, they did come back with the firebird the next year with one of my favorite shows.

Just in case anyone didn't know,

 

It's official now,

 

Cavaliers-The Music of Billy Joel

 

I'll come right out and say that I'm extremely skeptical, I mean, music might still be pretty good, but what the heck can they do visually????
