Focal Points & Questions

Corps at the Crest

  • Building off of their preseason hype, where will Pacific Crest fall in the rankings? 
  • SCV didn't compete in last season's DCI Celebration and opted to submit a virtual visual experience called 'Wait For Me'
    • How will they handle their first big public performance since 2019?
  • Where will the California Open Class corps place in their debut 2022 showings? 

Drum Corps at the Rose Bowl

  • We see the same lineup here as we did at Corps at the Crest, only with the addition of the Blue Devils.
    • How will their name in the lineup disrupt the scoring from Corps at the Crest?
  • Can audiences look forward to solid improvement after the first show jitters have been worked out?

Western Corps Connection

  • These ten corps have three shows in three days - will the scores stay the same each day?
  • Blue Devils and SCV go head-to-head two days in a row.
    • Will we see fierce back-and-forth competition or will there be a clear frontrunner?
