Worlds Apart is an original composition exploring the narative that although we may be worlds apart in certain ways, we are still living in the same world. Akin to the idea that even though a coin has two different sides, it's still the same coin. Using the sassy and catchy melody from Etta James "At Last", the audience is sure to understand when opposing forces realize they are better off together. Rob Stein's original musical scoring is beautifully stunning. The opener explores a strict brass vs. woodwind choir texture/ timbers to explore opposits. The technical demand in the woodwind family, vitoustic solos and soli sections are stunning and sure to drop jaws and elicit a positive audience reaction. The band costumes will help tie in the opposits but similar idea while the staging and props will also visually reinforce the shows identity. The color guard is the connective tissue...where worlds apart come together, the color guard is there to bring home. Don't miss this year's field show!
