Show: Gold Rush

  • Death by Triple Fiddle
  • The Gates of Gold (for Violin and Orchestra)
  • She'll Be Comin' Round The Mountain

The good: This just SOUNDS like a Troopers show. I don't know what about it makes me say that but my mind just says Troopers when I hear this show. The arrangement of She'll be Comin' Around the Mountain was the highlight of the show and showed off a silly side to the Troopers which I enjoyed. The piece after Mountain is straight-up Troopers, very Western, if you will.

The bad: Death by Triple Fiddle was kind of abrupt and I'm not sure it translates well to the field. My wife has the original recording and that's a tough act to follow.

The ugly: The drill (from what I saw in Allentown) is lacking. I understand that's due to uncertainty of the size of the corps when the drill is written but I'm willing to bet a more demanding drill would push this corps up a spot or two because the corps did have strong technique.

Overall: I do feel this corps is better than last years but the demand was lower than 2004. I think the corps is ready to be challenged in 2006 and they won't disappoint.
