Drum Corps Saturday - 1974 Santa Clara Vanguard

Someone has put a ton of excellent drum corps videos onto Youtube, to which I can only say, "Thank you, thank you, thank you!" :) This particular video is from the 1974 DCI prelims at Cornell University's Schoelkopf Field in Ithaca, NY. Santa Clara won DCI that year with a score of 89.500, beating out the Madison Scouts, who were my favorites that year. And, once again, yes, I'm in the crowd somewhere. ;)

(Note: These videos were taken from a TV broadcast, and so there's a fair amount of chatter both before and after the show.)

The Repertoire: Die Gotterdammerung (from The Ring) * A Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra * Overture to Candide * A Little Night Music * Weekend in the Country (from A Little Night Music) * Send in the Clowns (from A Little Night Music)

I guess you're on the wrong side of the date line then, aren't you? ;) I also thought I'd start doing these "bedtime music" videos, set to be posted at 11 pm here, which, of course, is currently 11 am on the east coast. So do I post them in my morning or your morning? :)
