The Cadets Release Music & Info For 2019 Show

The Cadets are actively releasing information about their 2019 production, "Behold," as a part of a fundraising campaign on their website called "Maroon And Gold Day."

As more donors commit to the campaign, more and more details are being released to the public inluding an encore tune the brass will play in 2019, the show's title graphic, and a video of one of the pieces of music that the corps is playing.

After receiving 50 donors, the group released a video of the brass section playing the overture from Bjork's "Dancer In The Dark" with the reward titled: Celebrating 50 Years Of Women In The Cadets. 

The next reward, achieved at 85 donors, is the name and graphic for their 2019 show which you can find at the top of this article. The significance of "85" ties into the corps' 85-year history. If you look closely at the graphic, you can notice the astrological symbols that stand for "male" and "female." The colors of the graphic are inherently "Cadets" with the very royal, dark maroon as a contrasting backdrop against the gold filigree and lettering.

Details of the show were released around 1:20 PM ET as they jumped from 153 donors to almost 160 within a few minutes. 

The show is described as "the struggle to attain power, keep power, and ultimately, the power of equality."

The opener's music is "Fanfare for the Women" and is "personified by a single character, the Queen." 

Program Coordinator Darcie Aungst explains the show's concept: "the design team wanted to honor the remarkable story of resilience, strength, unity, and healing for The Cadets and for all women in our activity and our country, as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of women in The Cadets in 2019."

Read the full explanation on The Cadets' website.

The rest of the show's repertoire includes:

  • "Just" by David Lang
  • "Blueprint" by Caroline Shaw
  • "Dance No. 1 from the Estancia Orchestral Suite" by Alberto Ginastera
  • "Bridge Over Troubled Water" by Paul Simon
  • "Do Better" by Tom Aungst, Omar Carmenates, and Brandon Carrita
  • "Symphony No. 4" by David Maslanka

We have reached out to The Cadets for an exclusive interview from someone on the design team and will be releasing that as soon as possible. For now, check out this interview with designer Drew Shanefield from the Brass-only March camp just two months ago.

Recap: 2019 Tour Of Champions - Northern Illinois

With three shows streamed by FloMarching yesterday, die hard drum corps fans had gone as far as to create spreadsheets combining the streaming schedules so they could figure out when to watch their favorite corps at each show. Mother Nature had other ideas, however, delaying the Memphis competition and turning Drums Along the Rockies into a standstill. Fortunately, the 2019 Tour of Champions - Northern Illinois event went off without a hitch. Let's review some of the takeaways from last night's show.

Preview: Drums Along the Rockies

Another great DCI show in the Mile High Stadium will be coming LIVE to FloMarching this weekend, starting at 6:30 PM MT. Drums Along the Rockies is always a great show for the Blue Knights to shine in their home city, plus it always brings out two Open Class corps that we don't get to see too often on FloMarching. The two corps kick off the show so don't miss Columbians and The Battalion.
