Return to the old west with “Our Town” a struggle between good and evil. Imagine movie set type props, the guard representing good and bad guys, and you’re able to effectively begin to tell a classic story of the good guys protecting their home town from Black Bart and his (her) posse. The guys at Westlake, UT were very successful with this show (placed 4th at the BOA Regional in Utah).
Movement 1: Silverado (Good Guy motives)
Movement 3: Gun Battle
Movement 4: Shenandoah
Movement 5: Black Bart Returns/Final Conflict
Movement 6: Into the Sunset
Watch any Cirque du Soleil show and you can easily start to design a marching band show. Their music so easily connects the audio to the visual. There are so many engaging tunes in their shows that translate well to marching band. Here are some titles we put together for the 2013 Tates Creek HS Marching Band (KY):
A La Lune
The story of a civil war drummer and the strife of the civil war are the underlying story behind this historical narrative. The use of several public domain folk tunes make this concept an easy sell to audiences and judges. The last movement uses the Gettysburg Address narrated over America the Beautiful to cap off this stirring show.
When Johnny Comes Home
America the Beautiful
Gone with the Wind
With the use of one copyrighted work, one public domain piece, and some original material this show “takes flight.” Feathers, wings, tarps that look like water, bird sound effects can all be used to tell this story. The band that did this had their best season ever.
Mvt. 1 Arrival of the Birds
Mvt. 2 Ballet of the Unhatched Chicks
Mvt. 3 Aviary
We imbedded several public domain themes throughout this show, including Angels Watching Over Me, Hark the Herald Angels Sing, Amazing Grace, and Ave Maria.
Mvt. 1 Angels in the Architect
Mvt. 2 Breath of Heaven
Mvt. 3 Angels and Demons
Something Wicked This Way Comes
This show has an evil feel, and is based on Shakespeare’s Macbeth.

Legend of Bafe’
Movement 1 is a high energy movement that comes out with both guns blazing! Cool clusters, timbres and textures make for a very interesting opening. This really has a lot of “juice.”
Movement 2 is a ballad that has several options at the beginning. A beautiful flute solo, clarinet choir, and a big hit make this great melody a super part of this show!
Movement 3 brings all of the themes from the entire show together. Hang on as the tempo cranks up at the end. This show has a red hot ending!
Mvt. 1 One Night in Bangkok
Mvt. 2 Uninvited
Mvt. 3 The Mummer’s Dance
Mvt. 4 Hermetico
This show tries to capture all the mystery and intrigue of Voodoo! It uses many traditional cajun sounds to create new settings of these well known works.
Mvt. 1 Incantation (Quidam) – Cirque du Soleil
Mvt. 2 The Devils Dance – The Imaginarium Of The Doctor Parnassus
Mvt. 3 Paint it Black
Reoccurring themes of Joy to the World and Ode to Joy are interwoven throughout the show.
Mvt. 1 Includes Joy to the World, Ode to Joy, and Joy (Revisited).
Mvt. 2 is a unique setting of Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring.
Mvt. 3 is a grooving original setting of Ode to Joy.
Spectrum (Colors of a Rose)
Movement 1 (White Rose) and Movement 2 (Yellow Rose) are filled with non-stop musical action. The White Rose start with intriguing percussion groove, vocal parts (optional), oboe solo, flute/oboe duet, and builds to a big hit. The Yellow Rose starts with woodwind feature, then picks up the tempo into a grooving 3/4 section, and wraps up with a smoking hot ending.
Movement 3 (Pink Rose) is Kissed By a Rose (Seal). This movement requires copyright permission. A flugal horn solo, harpsichord, and acoustical guitar make this a beautiful and haunting part of this show!
Movement 4 (Baroque Rose) is a cool fugue that can transition to a drum break or go right into the Red Rose.
Movement 5 (Red Rose) starts with getting the crowd clapping and a screaming rock guitar. The woodwind section trades licks with the guitar, then builds to a big hit, silent drill, and then concludes with an amazing flair! This show has endless possibilities.

This show is based on one one of my published concert band work (Curnow Music Press). How about a using tuned water classes, bowed vibes, and other unique effects? Visually the use of crystal images, snow flakes, snow globes and other winter type props and guard equipment can help communicate the theme of this show. How about building a mountain on the field and have students sled riding down the mountain? This show has endless visual and musical possibilities. Let us personalize it for you.
Mvt. 1 This opening movement has a slow dramatic start, then transitions to a flying 12/8 section. The grooving 12/8 section provides the woodwinds and trumpets a chance to show off!
Mvt. 2 This movement is a beautiful ballad. A lyrical solo and lush sounds make this movement a must for any show.
Mvt. 3 This final movement has a great ending that keeps coming, a great part of any show!
