Show: Postcards From Home
The Good: Great sounds from the hornline. Another corps who has built a strong hornline over multiple years. I really enjoy the arrangement of the Red Pony, although I don't really see this as a piece for the middle of a show, more like a closer. A very clean performance from all sections of the corps, very balanced with no weak sections.
The Bad: I'm not a fan of this arrangement of Promise of Living. It's too choppy and fast for my taste. I'm also not sure if The Landworkers fits in the theme of this show. Maybe if Colts hadn't lost their postcards during Finals week, we'd have a better understanding of the story the show tells.
The Ugly: Nothing ugly to write home about.
Overview: This is the cleanest Colts show in a few years. My problem with the show, though, is that it's pretty vanilla and doesn't grab me like past shows have. Nothing really stands out about the show. Still, their best show since 2001.
2006 Auditions: December 16-18
