Marching Band Season

One thought on “Marching Band Season”

Florida A&M used the Die Meistinger Prelude and Elsa’s Procession to the Cathedral (Lohengrin), but that band was suspended for … well, it sounded really good in the day. I’ve always thought that the opening of Bruckner’s Te Deum could do serious structural damage to a stadium’s structural integrity. The JS Bach Toccata and Fugue in D Minor could be used, particularly if the theme from the movie Rollerball was the version. Lots more possibilities. Raiding old Drum Corps recordings of Phantom Regiment and other groups is good.
