Well this was "surround sound" at its finest. My son's high school marching band had a Christmas concert recently, and this is the one of the last songs of the concert, the one they played in two Christmas parades. The concert took place in the school theater. It starts out with the drum major's whistle, followed by about a minute of the drum cadence. During the cadence the kids march from the stage up the aisles, surrounding the audience (I am seated in between the aisles, which are lined with band members). We hear the drum major again, then the band begins playing. After a couple of minutes, the song finishes and the audience breaks into applause. This was just taken from a digital video camera which did a poor job of capturing the experience, but still you may find it enjoyable or useful. Next year I will plan ahead and bring my preamp!!
