Perhaps this topic would go well in the drumline forum as well, but anyway...

When do you find out what the theme of your field or indoor show is going to be?

Our director keeps it as a surprise, and he typically doesn't let us know what the other options may be. It's actually sorta neat and fun to be kept in suspense.

Our band director just tells us...haha. We have rehearsals with the incoming freshmen in May, so he has some of the music ready to read through so they can get idea of what it'll be like...I like knowing WAY in advance, very fun. hehe

The students got to pick?

I don't know about that...that way the directors have no idea what the music is, what the theme is, no real ideas...

Its the job of the drill instructors and directors to pick the theme, and its the job of the students to help make it come to life. Thats what I think, at least.
