About This Marching Band Show...

This production is meant to fully immerse you in a Cathedral. The preshow begins with a haunting version of the Old 100th which slowly moves into Richard Wagner's Elsa's Procession to the Cathedral. The opening statement features the beginning of Bach's Toccata and Fugue in d minor. As we move onto the 1st movement, both Toccata and Fugue in d minor and Frank Ticheli's Angels in the Architecture. are blended together. The melodies weaving in and out of each other will create a fresh and new arrangement that will definitely excite your audience! The ballad will include both Bach & Franz Biebl's version of Ave Maria. The beautiful melodies will be a perfect contrast to the 1st movement. The percussion will then take center stage with David Gillingham's Stained Glass. As the final movement begins, there is a short section from Angels in the Architecture that will lead into a culminating version of the Doxology which will bring the audience to their feet!
