2011 Marching Shows

Recommended Posts

Any word on if Bloomington's show is very similar (if not the same) to the 2002 PCMB show?  ???


Not similar at all.


From Bloomington's site:

The 2011 Marching Raiders proudly present their 2011 field show, “elasticity.”  Music inspired by Aaron Guidry’s “Bent” and visual design by Mitchell Rogers.


To listen to the original "Bent," go here: http://yataforluda.com/#/music/ and click on "Bent."

Herscher: "Dreams of the Inner Child"

The group leads a child, Little Suzy, through her dreams with the help of the guard as visual communicators and the band being the dream machine. 

Little Suzy is taken through dreams of her school day (Act 1), a fantasy and battle (Act 2), and a nightmare (Act III).  As the nightmare comes crashing down onto Suzy, she is jolted awake but something is still lingering around her.  As the dream loop starts again, was she really dreaming or not?
