Although it might seem like those who marched in a corps this past summer might be tired of their own performances, some members are looking to relive their summers through the PBS broadcast. "I'm definitely looking forward to it," said Blue Devils soprano player Jeff Lynn, 21, of Concord, Calif. "I'm most looking forward to the big swing section of (the Blue Devils) performance, and seeing how it came out on the tape. It was really loud on the field," Lynn said.Lynn has dutifully watched the Drum Corps International broadcast on PBS for a long time. "For eight or nine years I've watched it on PBS," Lynn said. Lynn, who always followed the Blue Devils program as it progressed through the summer, enjoyed seeing how a corps performance evolved through the summer and culminated on finals night, which was always shown on PBS. "It was always fun to see what the finished product was like," Lynn said.Lynn's favorite year of the PBS broadcast was 1994, the summer he had spent watching the Blue Devils' "A-corps" religiously. "It was a really powerful moment!" Lynn said of watching the broadcast from Foxboro Stadium in Foxboro, Mass. That year the Blue Devils won with a score of 98.40. Lynn is studying music performance at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill, Calif. "Performing is my passion. I would love to have performance be my life," Lynn said earlier this summer.
