The atmospheric impression of "Dawn" allows Colts to sneak on to the field, but when the corps turns around, notice has been served that the members intend to avenge placing outside finals in San Antonio a week earlier. The Gillingham "Concertino for 4 Percussion and Winds" has an increased sense of urgency, with additional crispness in the brass being much in evidence. The surging crescendo in "Be Thou My Vision" was richly rewarded with audience approval, and the optimism of the melody of "New Century Dawn" makes it hard to not sing along.Courtney Caswell is the corps' 21-year-old guard captain. She says the guard's 2002 slogan is "No doubt," as they look forward to a fulfilling week in Madison.
