From the Cadets' Web site: A closer at 210 beats per minute - for three minutes straight - and a crush of horn power that nails you head on. Mix it up with a non-stop, commanding opener played with more confidence in every run-through, it's body now interlaced with amazing voices of inspiration. The corps' 2007 program, "This I Believe," is coming to life. The Cadets came into their fifth rehearsal camp knowing they needed to buckle down and work hard. Mother Nature had dealt them a blow in March, and a postponed camp had stalled momentum on their 2007 program "This I Believe." But by the completion of two days of sectionals, visual drill block and two remarkable ensemble rehearsals, it was apparent the energy and commitment of the Maroon and Gold never strayed far. The camp last weekend at Penns Grove High School in Carneys Point, N.J., included both the horn line and percussion sections learning and playing the closer Adiemus: "Choral VI & Song of Aeolus," a work by Composer Karl Jenkins. The piece, arranged by Jay Bocook, Cadets' arranger of 15-years, runs three minutes, its tempo as fast as 210 beats per minute. It also includes a challenging percussion segue arranged by Tom Aungst and Neil Larrivee. Read more about the Cadets' most recent rehearsal camp at www.yea.org.
