Sorry about the inadvertent omission of Carolina Crown. I am mostly familiar and am fan of the Midwest Corps. Don't have the bread to see any shows outside of the Kalamazoo one, and the DVD's are a bit pricey. I have a number of finals from years ago that I taped, when PBS was showing the whole thing. I agree, no amplification and other gadgets needed! Especially no narration. I didn't see the Cadets show this year, but heard about it. Lots of good corps in my etc. list.I have a hard time relating to a lot of the "original" or obscure music used in programs. No frame of reference. However, it sure must be a challenge to come up with some interesting theme every year.
