Oct 4 by Paul Katula ... LWE is impressive for its size: so many marchers on the field weaving in and out in fairly tight formation. They are absolutely in constant motion, which is very effective. This is an excellent composition for use in a marching band, by the way. The singing is haunting, and that plays right in to the rest of the piece and the visuals, which use body positions that fit the music to a T. This piece was Joseph Schwantner's first composition for a large wind ensemble. It uses, in addition to the band, unusual elements like crystal flutes, the aforementioned singing, and most importantly, an amplified piano accompanist, here in the pit. Stunning.

Sep 13 by Paul Katula ... Singing. In harmony. You rarely see multi-part singing on the marching field, but LWE pulls it off beautifully. And that's not all. They put so many marchers on the field and weave them in and out in such tight formation, the Blue Angels would be proud. Straight lines and French curves are all nicely orchestrated, though the season is still very young. LWE tends to peak around the time of the BOA super-regionals and Grand Nationals.
