This year the marching band will be performing a show titled "Thunderstruck." It will feature classical, jazz and rock melodies and will allow the audience to experience what it is like to be in the middle of a thunderstorm and a thunderstorm's aftermath.
Movement one of the show will feature melodies from the movie Singing in the Rain and Symphonie Fantastique by Berlioz. Movement two will feature the more peaceful side of thunderstorms with the beautiful melody Over The Rainbow from the Wizard of Oz. The last movement will feature the percussion section with the song Thunderstruck by AC/DC and a return of melodies from the first movement.
This show allows us to play very exciting music and entertain the audience with melodies that they know. It also will allow us to add visual elements that will help with visual captions. The recording below is a MIDI recording so it is a little hard to hear how cool this will sound with real instruments. Be aware that we will be changing some elements of the music to help feature soloists and small ensembles so our music will be a little different than what you hear on the recording.
