The "Conquest" pre-show extravaganza had the Midwest audience screaming in approval. Determined to be in the evening show, flames practically poured out of the horns in "Captain from Castile," followed by the tender strains of "Asturias," especially haunting and resonant inside the RCA Dome. "Conquistador" and "Saving El Dorado" made the ears tingle, and judging by the audience reaction upon the very end of the show, the corps touches the emotions of the fans as well as it ever did.
