The Cornhusker Summer Music Games Was a Blast

The Missus and I had a great time at the Cornhusker Summer Music Games last night. The crowd was smaller than I would have hoped, but given the messiness of last year’s rainout fiasco, I’m not terribly surprised. The corps were, of course, very impressive.

Three corps stood out to me. My favorite story came from The Academy from Tempe, with their show titled “The Chase”. The Santa Clara Vanguard win the nod for my favorite marching, with crisp charts and very nice transitions. And finally, The Cadets win the award for Lamest Story That Was So Awful I Couldn’t Fairly Judge Their Marching and Music Because I Was So Distracted. Their show included voice-overs rambling on about happy happy joy joy baloney that not even an After School Special would have gone for. I’m pretty sure Stuart Smalley directed their show.

Overall it was a successful evening at Memorial Stadium. Congratulations to the organizers, and a huge bravo to the student-athlete-musicians/dancers of the six corps.
