Bomber Marching Band
Jason Rose, Band DirectorThe Bomber Marching Band is proud to present our 2019 program, ARE YOU AWAKE?
The show begins with their character being lulled to sleep by a music box, only to realize that she's in a nightmare. Following her nightmare, she experiences a more peaceful dream in the woods along a stream. The show beings in an etherial dreamscape with music from Philip Glass and Eric Whitacre. Our character struggles to wake from this mystical dream and gain consciousness. As she realizes she can control her dream world, we hear the rock anthem "Dream On," and she finally awakens to reality.

July 20, 1969 ushered in a new era in World history as Apollo 11 landed on the moon and Neil Armstrong uttered his famous words. Not only was the moon landing a huge leap for science, it was also a result of an outrageous goal set by a young leader, a renewed sense of exploration and hope, and a common sense of pride for a nation divided by war and civil rights.
We invite you on this journey as we walk in the shoes of American giants through creating a vision, rewriting the stars, and ultimately conquering the challenges of a world beyond our own.

May 18th, 1980 at 8:32AM started the most catastrophic volcanic eruption in recent time, exploding with the force of over 1,600 atomic bombs. The Mt. St. Helens cloud of ash blanketed the region, pummeled the Yakima valley and over the following days circled the globe. US Government officials designated blast zones and evacuated all residents from the area, except for one strong-willed and persistent man, Harry R. Truman. Truman defied the evacuation notices and chose to stay at his home for over 50 years, becoming the most infamous casualty of the Mt. St. Helens eruption. Buried under 300 feet of ash and mud, Truman’s Mt. St. Helens Lodge, and Harry Truman himself, are now entombed forever under the newly formed Spirit Lake.
