ARts e th f o r t o r o ct p e r WGI S Di e tiv

April 2, 2009

Greetings to everyone gathered for the 2009 WGI Color Guard and Percussion World Championships. Over the course of two weekends the best of the best will come and vie for honors in two of the most diverse and passionate activities in the marching arts. The young people who will perform for you are all extraordinary and are deserving of your applause. This year we are taking a new approach to the weekend by expanding activities around the competition. I am pleased to announce our partnership with Susan G. Komen for the Cure© to create WGI’s first ever “Breast Cancer Awareness Day” at the World Championships. This disease which has touched so many families is relevant to an activity whose color guard participants are 85% young women. WGI can be a vital force in promoting awareness and help raise funds to find a cure. Another way WGI is expanding our event is by sponsoring educational opportunities such as our Master Class event on Sunday morning with acclaimed choreographer Mia Michaels. Our goal here is to give performers a life-changing experience to take class from one of the most popular artists in contemporary dance today. Another hope would be to have what is commonly known as percussion “drum circles” which if you’ve ever seen one, is an experience you won’t soon forget. The young people taking part this weekend will become the teachers of tomorrow.

As one season closes, we are busy planning for the future. Spinfest!!, our very successful instructor educational event, is planned for September 18-19 in Orlando, Florida. Look for a bigger and more exciting third edition of the event that helps teachers teach color guard skills. In closing, let me thank you again for supporting WGI Sport of the Arts. In these tough economic times, I’m sure some of you are wondering about the state of our organization. We have more groups participating at WGI events than last year and while some groups are cutting back on travel, interest is at an all-time high. While school districts have drastically cut back on funding, our performers are resilient enough to follow their passion. It is something truly to admire and bodes well for the future of WGI. My best wishes to all the performers this weekend…have the time of your lives!

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Winter Guard International, welcome to our 32nd World Championships. We are thrilled that the most spectacular event for both the winter guard and indoor percussion activities is once again here in Dayton, Ohio. Our color guard and percussion championship weekends are culminations of many months of hard work and dedication shown by the performers, teaching staffs, support staffs, parents, family, friends and alumni of our performing groups. The applause and appreciation you show for each performing group is not only for the group out on the floor but for all those behind the scenes. Thanks to all of you for the tireless efforts put in each and every year.

From the performance floor to the top row of the UD Arena, from the souvenir tent to the Marriott ballroom, take a look around this weekend, and you’ll see a lot of people smiling. While the “real world” (the actual real world, not the TV series) seems to be in an ever-complicated state of turmoil, for many of us who make the pilgrimage to WGI World Championships year after year, there isn’t a greater escape from reality than three days of flag-spinning, rifle-smacking, sabre-tossing, drum-pounding pageantry! However, while there will certainly be numerous stunning performances this weekend, what will likely remain in our collective memories, in more vivid colors than any props or flags, will be the experience of being together with friends, family and thousands of other like-minded people. Is there anything more life affirming than running into an old friend and regaling shared experiences from years past? Perhaps that’s why the results from a recent psychological study by Ryan Howell at San Francisco State University have caught the eye of so many, particularly those of us whose “discretionary income” may not be as sizeable as we’d like it to be. The research suggests that, in the long run, positive experiences – rather than material possessions - make people happier and lead to longer-term satisfaction. “Experiences provide memory capital,” Howell said. “We don’t tend to get bored of happy memories like we do with a material object.”

Another reason for increased happiness in experiences, the researchers found, was that people felt a greater sense of vitality or “being alive” during the experience and in reflection. “Whether they take someone with them or buy an extra ticket, most of our life experiences involve other individuals,” Howell said. People were fulfilling their need for social bonding while having these experiences. In other words, you’ll remember this championships experience long after you’ve lost your ticket stub, and those memories will continue to provide you with happiness. This is not big news for many of us. Years ago we accepted that while our commitment to winter guard and indoor percussion might not bring us great monetary wealth, it would bring us wonderful memories and lifelong friendships we wouldn’t trade for any fancy car or expensive condominium. During times of economic turmoil, the arts are sometimes dismissed as a frivolous luxury, but I would argue that the experiences we embrace as part of the WGI community

are not an extravagance: they are essential to our quality of life. And so, this weekend, let us stand up and cheer not only for our performers, many of whom have juggled school and jobs to get here, but also for the hard-working WGI staff and volunteers, who pull off this spectacular event every year. Let us congratulate the designers and instructors who create innovative and entertaining productions while miraculously scraping the funds together to bring their units here to compete. Let us applaud parents, friends and family members who sell candy, paint props and sew costumes; the fans who buy tickets and t-shirts; sponsors whose banners hang behind the performance floor; the generous city of Dayton; the videographer, the announcer and that man in the funny hat hawking raffle tickets. We’re all in this together and it’s going to be another unforgettable experience!

m e st y S g n gi Jud The

WGI Judges undergo a rigorous training program. Many are educators and professionals who share a common understanding of the gigantic role the marching arts played in their own lives. These judges offer a quality experience to the thousands of young people who grace our stage and give us their best expertise and knowledge.

Color Guard

Marching Percussion

Concert Percussion

Equipment 20 points

General Effect 40 points

Artistry 50 points

Equipment judges analyze the range and depth of the choreographic efforts of the flags, rifle, sabers or other props being manipulated. Equipment judges will also analyze the training, excellence and achievement of the performers in comparison to multiple responsibilities being asked.

General Effect judges are evaluating two specific things during a performance: Music Effect (communication, creativity, blend and balance, expression) and Overall Effect (communication, audio/visual coordination, pacing through time, imagination/creativity, entertainment).

Here an intense look is given to the program and the fulfillment of those programmatic choices. Here communication, musicianship, presence, and expression make up a few of the components being evaluated.

Movement 20 points

Performance Analysis 40 points

Movement judges analyze the range and depth of the movement choreography while spinning equipment and while strictly dancing. Special consideration is made regarding the training, excellence, and achievement of the performers, as well as the uniformity from performer to performer.

Performance Analysis judges look at the composition of a show (musical and technical content, and simultaneous responsibilities) as well as the performance quality (musicianship, rhythmic clarity and uniformity).

Here the judge listens with a critical ear for the clarity of the intent of the composition, while considering performance qualities including musicianship, quality of sound, and technical excellence.

Ensemble Analysis 20 points

Visual judges consider the show composition as well as the performance quality. Compositional elements being analyzed include: visual musicality, attention to detail, creativity and unity of the elements composing the composition.

Ensemble judges analyze the quality of the design, and the depth of the composition of the program as a whole. Special consideration is given to the technical and expressive excellence demonstrated by the performers. A close look is given to each moment in time.

General Effect 40 points General Effect judges reward the plan of events or effects. Effects can be intellectual, (thought provoking, complex in design, literal to musical interpretation) emotional (adrenaline, broad range of human emotions), or aesthetic (color, shape, artistic). This caption is about the whole package and how it is brought to life through the performers.

Known as the organization’s most prestigious honor, the WGI Hall of Fame recognizes those outstanding individuals who through their exceptional work and achievements have made a significant contribution to the color guard and indoor percussion activity.

Marlene Miller

Dayton, OH

Marlene is the matriarch of the Miller family for over 50 years. Along with Fred, her husband and WGI Hall of Fame honoree, she has been involved in all aspects of the pageantry arts activity. Long known for her keen eye and unerring senses of style, she was instrumental in building FJM into a leader in performance wear, supplies, equipment, clinics, and sponsorship for the marching arts. Since the 1970’s, Marlene has been known for her designs for the Miller Blackhawks and WGI Scholastic World Champion Miamisburg High School and has earned a reputation as a favorite design source, designer, and advisor. Starting with a few well made flags, she has turned FJM into the international standard for quality workmanship, fresh ideas, and personal service. In addition to her design trend setting styles, she also contributed greatly to the overall visual look of the Miller Blackhawks. While many may consider Marlene to be the “softer-side” of the Miller family, she was in fact one of the most commanding members of the creative and instructional team. She was excellent in the “cleaning process” of the guard, a job that she really enjoyed. Whenever Marlene worked with you as a performer it was always in a gracious manner. You felt you were a part of the Miller family when she was working with you. And more importantly, in Marlene’s mind you were. She served as the Treasurer of the Ohio Color Guard Circuit for some thirty years and worked in tabulation for approximately 20 years. Her love and dedication to the Color Guard world continued even after she retired from the circuit and became a positive influence and a significant contributor to numerous successful winter guards as she worked on costuming, flag design and other creative ventures. Today Marlene is a cornerstone of the success of the FJM business, a staple in the color guard, marching band, and drum corps field.

Since the inception of the Hall of Fame in 1992, the policy was to only induct living individuals. Recently the members voted to allow a posthumous election. WGI is pleased to announce the induction of the following individuals. Their contribution were made through artistic standards, administrative leadership, or adjudication.

Donald Angelica A visionary and one of the founders of WGI, he was a force in challenging designers to push boundaries while mentoring creative minds in a young WGI. A fierce advocate of the “new”, he was on the front edge of color guard at the beginning.

John Brazale Leading the Phantom Regiment to consecutive championships in 1979 and 1980, he created the “total concept” show still in use today. His creative exploration of soundtrack and costumes to tell a story set the direction for a new generation.

Steve Brubaker A cornerstone in the development of staging concepts, his work with the Cavaliers led to a string of world championships. His unique approach to entertainment still remains a standard for today’s designers. Tam Easterwood A key player with the State Street Review instructional staff, he took the rifle and its role in show design to a new level. Swearing he would never “just spin”, long and intricate phrases became his signature. Bruce Leo Through his work with St. Anthony’s Imperiales, he was a strong voice in the early days of WGI. Inspiring many instructors with his approach to classical color guard, he paved the way for a new era of the activity. Bob Wiles Most known for his tireless work as a key player on the championship volunteer staff, he also was director of Anthron who turned the concept of traditional color guard upside down and challenged both audience and judges with a bold new approach. Harvey Wingo Known as “Mr. UD”, he was the face of the world championships for decades. His passion and enthusiasm was his motivation to lead WGI volunteer staff in creating memorable performance opportunities.

George Zingali Unquestionably one of the most creative minds of the first generation of WGI, his innovative design led Quasar to the first WGI championship. Erte Productions cemented his legacy as one of the architects of modern indoor color guard.
