Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the organization's founding in 1956, the 2006 show, "Faust", took the corps back to its true classical heritage and included works such as: Scythian Suite by Sergei Prokofiev, Ave Maria by Franz Biebl, Piano Concerto by John Corigliano, and Symphony No. 2 ("Resurrection") by Gustav Mahler. The 2006 Phantom Regiment took second place with a score of 96.850 at the Drum Corps International World Championships in Madison, Wisconsin, Regiment's highest finish since 1996. The corps also received its first Fred E. Sanford High Percussion Award, led by percussion caption head Paul Rennick. As a humorous side note, a judge described this show as "touching my very soul" and then proceeded to announce "I need a cigarette, and I don't even smoke" thus proving the 2006 "Faust" production to be one of Phantom Regiment's most emotional productions yet.

Famous quotes containing the word anniversary:
“The second day of July 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more”
—John Adams (17351826)
