    Crown's Fine was oh my goodness. My favorite of all time though is Spartacus!

    Right now I'm with The Ghost Riders Mini (Stage) Corps- came in second in the world last year!

    I'm also doing the high note guy thing with a small A-class field corps called the White Sabres. I figured why not, and my friend is the brass caption head.

    I always thought there was an age limit to DCI and the like. Is there?

    DCI=Drum Corps International aka you age out at 22. DCA=Drum Corps Associates-there are no age limits unless set by the individual corps...There are also a lot of alumni corps as well. But DCA and DCI are different organizations in general.

    I'm thinking about auditioning for a corps this fall too. I'm thinking possibly bluecoats, not entirely set on anything though. For anybody who is curious, they don't require a prepared piece, and their audition etudes for this last season (2012 auditions) were arban's characteristic study #1 measures 1-24 for technical and measures 1-24 of Theo Charlier Transcendental Etude No.2 for the lyrical portion. They have an audition packet available on their site for $15, I'd recommend picking it up as it has a lot of useful exercises and tips.
