It is by far his most popular symphony, and one of the most popular in the romantic repertoire. Neil Armstrong took a recording of the New World Symphonyto the moon during the Apollo 11 mission — the first Moon landing — in 1969.
Our show presents the first, second, and fourth movements of the original symphony, re-imagined for marching band, with solos from Tyson Robinson on baritone and Chandler Brown on mellophone.

MUSIC SELECTIONS: Amazon, Rain Forest, Pirahna
SHOW DESCRIPTION: This show is meant to depict the many aspects of life in the Amazon Rain Forest. The opener depicts Amazon natives and the darker side of life in the Amazon Jungle. Through primal drumming and wind sounds throughout the band a dark foreboding theme is conveyed as if you are being chased through the jungle. In Rain Forest, the chase is off for now… You are surrounded by beauty and the wonders of the Rain Forest. You are held in awe by the animals that you can see and hear as you venture deeper into the Rain Forest. In Pirahna, imagine that you decide to go for a swim, but you soon discover that you are not alone in the water. There are pirahnas everywhere, and you barely make it out alive, only to find that you are once again being chased by the Amazon natives. Will you make it out…?

This year, the Golden Apple Marching Band sparks excitement, fear and rebirth in Wildfire. As firefighters work the lines and dig trenches to proactively combat the devastation that fire can cause, flames blaze their path of destruction, obliterating all in their way. A vast, barren space is all that remains. Yet in good time, both nature and humans prevail and a beautiful rebirth allows the beauty of the wilderness to bloom in bountiful glory. The Golden Apple Marching Band dedicates this season to the valiant firefighters who dedicate themselves to protecting others and sometimes bravely pay the ultimate price.

Falcon Marching Band
Kevin Swisher, Band Director“STORMSCAPE” is an interpretive depiction of classic images and moods associated with storms. Weather formations, motivated musically by the music of Eric Whitacre and some of the classic compositions from cinema of days gone by, whirl and spin to form Hanford High Schools 2013 show written by Russ and Chris Newbury. Hand painted silk flags, created by choreographer Loralee Newbury, are a highlight in the opener 1) “Storm front.” The percussion section takes the spotlight in the fast paced whirlwind of 2) “Miss Gulch.” 3) “Calm after the storm,” along with the music for the opening movement of the show are based upon music from “Cloudburst” written by composer Eric Whitacre and 4) “Singing in the Rain” is simply a fun light-hearted celebration of the joy most of us feel as we embrace the rain from a child’s perspective. Under the direction of Kevin Swisher and Chris Newbury, the Hanford Band Program is enjoying both regional and national acclaim for success in the classroom. This year the wind ensemble will be performing in Indianapolis at the “Music for All” National Concert Band Festival and the HHS Jazz Ensemble “I” will be performing at the WMEA All State Music Conference in Yakima. On behalf of the Hanford High band students, staff and parents, we would like to thank all of the show sponsors in our region who help provide a venue for our students to experience live performance opportunities in the visual and performing arts. We hope you enjoy our show, “STORMSCAPE.”
