Hey pit, wondering about your thoughts on drum and bugle corps

Drum and bugle corps are, in short, like marching bands without woodwinds - there are brass, guard, drums, and pit. We put on complex 8-12 minute shows that require musicianship, marching skill, and will. Musically, a corps' brass line is, with few if any exceptions, the loudest acoustic instrument on earth, all with complete cleanliness required from all members. Over the season, there are many daily rehearsals that require members to locate to places closer to rehearsal sites. Then the tour starts, when corps tour around the country playing in many different places for around 6 or so weeks.

Me - I am a soloist this 2011 season for the velvet knights (the funny corps)

I'm still trying to work out how corps is pronounced core...

as i walk through the chalet of the shadow of death
everything that you've come to expect
