Promise of Living

I went to DCI Championships this past weekend.

sigh

The corps that did the most phenomenal, artistically powerful and subtle show did not win, but placed 2nd. They opened with a stunning arrangement of Aaron Copeland's The Promise of Living from The Tenderland.

When a video of their performance worth posting is available, I will put it up. Until then, here's is a lovely setting of The Promise of Living.

I was in tears after just their opener...and the show continued to get more spectacular. Kids, you are just amazaing and should be so proud of your performance this year.

Tears. Wow. It must have been amazing. Thanks for playing. I've made a special list for you.

Doesn't politics sometimes play into these championships? I think it does in many high school competitions, sadly. I'm really looking forward to seeing the video - what an inspiring piece of music! I really love Copeland.

Jen - very political. Like the French judge at the Winter Olympics and the Figure Skating debacle.

Oy. They went from Copeland to Bernstein and on. Stunning music and visually breathtaking.
