Would have to say I'm most excited to see how Batavia, Sandburg, and VJA do with their shows. I personally lean more to like artsy intense shows vs the pop stuff but I'm sure all the shows this year will be entertaining. :cool:  Best of luck to all bands this coming season!

Show description:
The first movement, Kanon by Johann Pachelbel captures the nervous and playful butterflies you feel when you notice your crush is also looking at you and you don’t know quite what to say.
The second movement, Allegro Barbaro by Bela Bartok takes you through the inevitable tension that creeps into every relationship.
Movement three, A Rachmaninoff Portrait is a peaceful time in the relationship when everything is just as it should be.
Movement four, Ode to Joy by Beethoven is the triumphant realization, in spite of a few bumps in the road, that Love conquers all and that in L.I.F.E., Love Is Forever Enduring.
