From a Marion Cadets press release: The 2005 Marion Cadets will present "Old School: A Drum Corps Anthology," featuring music from the days of drum corps vinyl. This historic show will include music from groundbreaking corps such as the Cavaliers, Velvet Knights, Blessed Sacrament, Bridgemen, the Black Knights and The Blue Devils. Cadets staffer Brett Owens said, "We anticipate this show will feature "Santa Esmeralda Suite" (including "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood," by Bennie Benjamin, Sol Marcus and Gloria Caldwell), "Softly as I Leave You" (by Giorgio Calabrese and Antonio De Vita) and "Free" (recorded by Chicago)." "This show will provide an entertaining package from the '60s, '70s and '80s with updated pageantry of the 21st century. The brass book will be arranged by Shaun Owens and I and the drill design is provided by Gary Backlund," Owens said.
