Songs for the Night

It looks like this ole Drum Corps Vet just may have to emerge from his sabbatical a year early:
This dark and rich program will explore various moods of the night. Earle Hagen's "Harlem Nocturne" provides the thematic backdrop for the production. Additional selections will include an edgy and mysterious take on Stan Kenton's "Commencement" as well as his "Aspect." A lush rendition of "My Immortal" from Evanescence will serve as the ballad while the intense energy of Dizzy Gillespie's, "A Night in Tunisia" is sure to bring drum corps fans to their feet. The music and expressive visual program will transport our audiences through the scariness, the sadness and the playfulness of the night.
That's your pre season tease. You'll have to show up at the Open House to find out more.
The 2009 season gets under way with our Open House on January 3, 2009!

The Open House begins at 1:30 p.m. at Highland High School in St. Paul. Alumni and fans are welcome to join us at the open house (even if you don't currently plan to march).
There is more to life than politics, and for me it is Drum Corps. Rearing teenagers brought a set of challenges that have prohibited me from being on the field the last three years. The 2009 season looks like it may set up for a return to the field.

It all begins on January 3rd. You should stop by!
