Arranged by Tim Hinton

Percussion Music by Brian Gill

Originally commissioned by the Lone Star H.S. Band, Frisco, TX – Tim Golden, Director.

New for 2018! Spectacular and Sophisticated!  Music by the masters presented in unexpected ways.  Rachmaninoff and Bach combine and interweave in the opening production, using Bach Invention No. 4 in D Minor and Rachmaninoff Prelude in C-Sharp Minor.  The ballad is the gorgeous "Emmanuel" by Colombier, and closing production is music from "Rite of Spring" by Stravinsky.  Challenging, tuneful, dramatic, and cutting edge!

New for 2018! A Sophisticated way to give your audience a familiar and nostalgic experience.  Using "Rock Around The Clock," "Hound Dog," "Earth Angel," and "Born To Hand Jive," this show tells the story of a date night in the 50's.  We begin by dancing at the Malt Shop, then our heroes get into a fight (in the middle of the ballad production!) over the girl.  We celebrate their victory with a rollicking dance number from "Grease," returning home at the end of the night with "There's no place like home."  Fun to play, fun to rehearse, fun to watch, and judges loved it!
