  1. I see that Grand Nationals looks to be really interesting this year from the evidence we've received thus far. Color me intrigued, excited for the season to come and the emotions that flow from these students.
  2. Wow, I am actually thoroughly surprised that even these schools will have the financial means, let alone the ability with district restrictions, to make the trip up north. I hope that marching band this fall runs strong! Yes, I know, it's as if you are seeing a ghost here. I think it is time I start being a bit more active in these parts again....
  3. Good Evening,It has been quite some time since the last time that I posted on this forum, and I have to say that I thoroughly miss it. I will start (slowly) becoming a bit more active here as time goes on. The life of a college student can do things to you sometimes, and frankly I also wanted to stay away for a while as this...issue..took hold of the world, as digesting a world without competitive marching band at any level was rather difficult and depressing, as I am sure it was for most of you too. By the way, I am currently a freshman at the University of Nebraska, and I have loved every mo
  4. Yeah. I think they will. There is a really great leadership team set for next year and the band is still growing both in size and talent. Numbers are already over 350 for this year and that’s really great. This will be Mr. Perkins first true show that he had the time and ability to design and polish, so I know that it will be a million times better than last year, and I know that he’s well known for consistency. I also know he happens to be an amazing motivational speaker and his speeches are amazing. I am confident to say that I know that the Madison band is under great hands. Not to mention
  5. That’s so cool! I am glad that you get to see your daughter make an impact on other people now!
  6. I know Madison hasn’t exactly been consistent, but given our new HBD I have sneaking feeling that is going to change very soon. They may not be in the next ten or higher this year, but I think that will change either next year or two or three years down the road. The Madison Band is going places now. Last year was just a really tough year.
  7. Lol that was a funny one, but I didn’t fall for it. Vista Ridge’s announcements are designed much, much better (no offense) and their music selections a are specifically listed and not all over the place with some artists, some specific songs, and some general soundtracks. Sorry, if it were more sophisticated I maybe would have fallen for it lol. Good try, though, as it gave me a good laugh.
  8. I would like to present the show for the 2020 Madison High School Band: "Dusk to Dawn" Featuring the following: A Kaleidoscope of Mathematics - James Horner A Child's Garden of Dreams - David Maslanka Rest - Frank Ticheli Dream on - Aerosmith https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-LuEq9wTE8&t=28s I hope you enjoy! I personally am really excited to see this from the stands. I can already tell that this is going to be an amazing show to watch and I wish I could be there to perform it. I can't believe that I am not going to be out there for the
  9. Wow that Leander show reveal was really interesting. I am excited to see how emotional band performances are going to be this year. I really think that this year will be a season full of special performances. I think a lot more tears will be shed this year from everyone, not just the performers.
  10. Here is an update from me! I have committed to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln this fall, and am double majoring in Meteorology and Mathematics of Physical Phenomena (the two fit right in together with little extra classes needed thanks to the math requirements for Meteorology) and double minoring in Physics and Computer Science - again with little to no extra classes. I plan on marching Bass Trombone in the marching band and possibly participating in concert ensembles as well, to be decided upon entering the second semester as I will have a better grasp on the time I have available an
  11. I wonder how much this will affect how many contests bands go to this year and how far they travel even if this clears up by the middle of the summer.
  12. Thank you as always Dan! Great content always comes from you. Keep it up!
  13. I’m also lucky to be attending a university that has a top five program for my major and somehow there are only 39 people majoring in that there!!! Granted, the field is still pretty small, so it makes sense, but the other school I would have gone to had 350 people in their meteorology program. That is nearly ten times the size.
  14. That is kind of the biggest think that I’m torn about. I can play well across all marching band registers for the trombone, so I can’t decide whether I want the melody or to blast notes two octaves below the staff because it’s what I am good at. I’m leaning towards the bass trombone a lot right now because I. Have so much fun playing it and I know that that is my forte. I made the state solo and ensemble contest with an unaccompanied solo on it (this is supposed to be my first trip to SSEC). Uggghhh such hard decisions. I also just just got a very expensive bass trombone mouthpiec
