Celebrating 40 years of WGI.

The Top 40 Winter Guard International Shows
Alta Marea Winterguard

In my seven years of color guard, I have seen countless shows on the field and on the floor. Throughout high school, a majority of these shows were seen throughout the South-Eastern Color Guard Circuit (SCGC). Although my high school did not attend WGI competitions, I still had the opportunity to see a few compete at some of our local competitions. Today, I am a member of one of those teams that filled several of my memories as a young performer, and the magic of it all still resides in my heart. Having the opportunity to finally be a part of something that you have worked so hard for is one of the most priceless feelings. This upcoming season will be my senior year as a member of The University of Alabama Million Dollar Band Color Guard, who many in the "winter guard world" know as Alta Marea. Looking back on all of the years I have watched shows live, or was sent a link via youtube, I have comprised a list of "The Top 40 WGI Shows", to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Winter Guard International.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
