Sep 30 by Paul Katula ... In an article for the Commercial News, Carol Roehm writes that Danville's show is entitled "We'll always have Paris": "We'll be playing pieces to evoke images of Paris," she quotes director Kent Krause as saying. "We're trying to tell a love story." Ms Roehm also talked to the boosters team about the amount of work that goes into these festivals. "Itís a lot of work," the publicity chair of the music booster organization was quoted as saying. "They work close to a nine-hour day from 2 in the afternoon on the day of the invitational, including cleaning up when it's over, plus the set-up the day before. ... We start planning for it (next year's event) the day it wraps up."

Sep 13 by Paul Katula ... The sense of Édith Plaf's 1945 hit "La Vie en Rose" is that of living in a rose garden, of living a blissful life. I think it would help the band develop that theme a little better if the visuals had more to do with bliss than with the color pink, though. There's some movement, nothing too complex, but the arrangement of the main tune, in the form of a marching band piece, is strained and takes itself much more seriously than Plaf's original ever did. This makes the theme of the show just miss the mark for me, although hard work on the part of the students is beginning to become evident in their execution.
