A Little Night Music

A contemporary marching band show with a deceiving title. While the title and optional pre-show music makes one think of Mozart, the bulk of the thematic material in the show is drawn from Hans Zimmer’s score for the Dark Knight movie trilogy. The middle tune changes gears featuring a Billy Joel ballad, Lullabye (Goodnight, My Angel). You’ll also hear echoes of Brahms Wiegenlied (Lullaby), Swan Lake and Night on Bald Mountain. This show also has synth parts and sound design elements.

Circus (Step Right Up)

Everyone loves the circus. Written for Greenville High School’s 2019 season, the show opens with an optional pre-show chorale based on the trio of Thunder & Blazes. A short fanfare begins the opener, “Under the Big Top”, followed by a traditional roll-off and a corps-style version of the top half of Thunder & Blazes. A segue takes us into Sabre Dance featuring the woodwinds and a drum solo. The second movement, “The Greatest Show on Earth”, is a medley of two tunes from the popular film, “The Greatest Showman”. The final movement, “Cirque du Rouge”, features tunes from Cirque du Soleil and then comes to a rousing conclusion with the final half of the trio to Thunder & Blazes with an ending reminiscent of a certain drum corps that wore long banana yellow jackets.

Worth a Thousand Words

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. This adage serves as an inspiration for a reimagining of Moussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition interwoven with melodic phrases from Bread’s 1971 soft rock hit If which asks the question “If a picture paints a thousand words…” This show has solo and small ensemble feature moments as well as opportunities to demonstrate your band technical expertise.
