Fall Trip Wrap Up

Thank you to all the parents who particpated in the fall trip as chaperones and trailer drivers. The parents were not only professional they were also kind, helpful, considerate and enjoyable to be with. Thank you also to the families who made the drive and attended one or both of the competitions! The students handled themselves with class and were a terrific group of travelers! I know I can speak for everyone and proclaim the fall trip as a success! From competition to fun ~ the trip was a great way to close our 2017 marching band season. A final big thank you to Mercy White for helping coordinate all the details of the trip!

Wonderful World is an original composition propelled by the irony of...is it or is it not a wonderful world we are living in. The music and visual work in tandem to set the scene of a post apocolyptic world. Perhaps all is ok, Perhaps all is not ok. Although the show concept and musical scoring is original, two well known songs appear in the fabric of the show. "What A Wonderful World" made popular by the infamous recordings of Louis Armstrong and Verdi's "Reqiuem, Dis Irae". The musical scoring is rich in diversity of texture, timber, technical demand, vitoustic solo and soli sections and stunning sampling and effects. Costumes for both band and color guard, staging and visually stunning flags align the musical and visual aesthetics. This show is sure to entertain and provoke intellectual resopnse. Wonderful World performed by the Award Winning Warren Band & Color Guard is coming to a stadium near you. 


Performance Dates:

Thursday November 16th - Annual Fall Band Spectacular @ Warren HS - Time 7-8pm - admission $3
