Upcoming Marching Band Half-Time Shows

Hey guys, irish here.
Last week at the icebreaker, our band was notified what show we are to put on for football season next school year.

As of now we’re playing 4 pieces, but I could only locate 2 of them online:

Our opener, Kingdom Hearts:

Ending song, Distorted:

Any of you guys in marching band? Feel free to post your upcoming shows here. It’s interesting listening to what other high schools are doing this year.

I have no idea yet. Our assistant director said they have something in mind, but he didn’t tell us what it was. Our first practice is at the end of the month and that is when they first show us the music.

Yeah, I didn’t get the pieces for it either, but our band director let us have a little preview of what we’re going to get into.

Interviews for leadership positions is this week… I really want to be section leader for alto saxes. 2 other people besides me want it. I just have to answer questions in the right way tomorrow. Nerve-racking, lol.

Good luck with that.
I’m going to try for section leader next year. This year, the two seniors are going to share it and they said I can be co-section leader.

co-section leader? I thought it would be section co-leader…

Whatever it is, Chris and Ben say co-section leader.

oh they say it like co-(section leader) …
ok they treat section leader as describing one thing…
I would treat the section part as an adjective that goes in front…
(I am not in band LOL)

To update thread:

This thread isn’t limited to posting music to your incoming half-time shows. You guys can also post your own “dream show” that you’d like to see your high school play. Just to keep the marching band mood in perspective in this thread.

For example, I’d like to see my high school actually have a reoccurring theme of Cirque du Soleil:

Show from Beginning to End:

These are really good songs to get into, I recommend hearing it in this order. It’s a little too long for a half-time show, but it’s just epic.

Cirque du Soleil!!!11

They are awesome to see live!
I went and saw them in vagas and they=awesome LOL

I should do one of their songs for my next project

Nightwatch - Movement 1
Nightwatch - Movement 2
Nightwatch - Movement 3
I myself love it, Thast our field show

Dude, amazing!!! I wish my band director had enough sense to make an epic show.

I even made a separate playlist for it!! I’m going to burn this to a CD so I can jam to it in the car. Thanks man.

Np, I know its sooo good, itss kinda hard, Ipersonally like the last one best, movement 3, which is movement 4 because of the fact that our drum directors made amovement with jsut drums. Ill get my mom to record the show so I can post it on youtube.

Awesome! Be sure to PM me, 'cause i’d love to see how it’d turn out!

Our show will be titled “Russian Cathedral”. I know the first movement will be Russian Christmas.

ours will be Synergies

Cant believe this, we got last place, of coursse we ARE the only junior 7-9 band against high school and proffessional marching bands so im not too surprised so anyways i got the vids on youtube.
Movement 1
Movement 2
Movement 3 & 4


Kinda got obsessed with nightwatch, made short files for movements one and more updated one for three:

listen.php?id=32802 (movement one)

listen.php?id=32725 (movement three)

thats actually amazing

Hah. I knew you’d like it. Still need to add in the necessary instruments for movement one, but movement one makes movement three look like crap. I need to rework it a little.

Drums sound awesome, right? Yeah, I know. Can’t stop listening to it myself.

also the actual speed of the song is 160
