2005 Madison Scouts "The Carmen Project"
Watch the 2005 Madison Scouts show "The Carmen Project" at the DCI World Championship finals.
The 2014 season was filled with some of the best drum corps shows the activity has ever seen. One would think that shows like "Felliniesque" and "Tilt" might overshadow others at the top, but Santa Clara Vanguard's modern take on Scheherazade—one decade after their last—stuck out as a must-see.
During the offseason preceding the 2014 competitive season, the DCI voting membership voted to allow all instruments from the brass family including the trombone and horn. Vanguard pounced on this opportunity and placed 24 trombones on the front sideline. It quickly became one of the best moments of the season.
