The Marching Band will be kept busy this fall with performances at all Redskin football games as well as participating in Marching Band Shows at Spring-Ford, Downingtown West, Central Bucks South, Council Rock, William Tennent and Hatboro Horsham High Schools. We will host our own 27th Annual Kaleidoscope of Bands Show on Saturday, October 26, 2019.
In our 2019 production Beyond… we explore the ideas of trying to reach beyond our known limits. We open the production with a mysterious introduction from Dark Side of the Moon by Paul Lovatt-Cooper. This builds into an energetic statement of power from Enterprising Young Men by Michael Giacchino. We continue on to the beautiful and haunting sounds of New World by Björk. The beauty is then interrupted by a driving statement of 160BPM by Hans Zimmer. Lastly, we close out our production with a return to hope as we finally reach beyond returning to additional music from Dark Side of the Moon.
