Showdown of Rhythm & Speed!
Who needs a stadium when there’s a band in the house? A halftime extravaganza beginning with the ancient rhythms of the world’s first drummers will fly on the wings of time only to be re-invented in the sound and fury of a band of musicians…hence, a new drumline is born!
While the 2012 Inaugural Season of Boerne Performing Arts filled the Champion High School Auditorium with an excitement and pulsation never before experienced in Boerne…a new twist to drumming will bring the ultimate showdown of rhythm and speed front and center stage with Drumline Live on Wednesday, January 30th at 7:30 p.m.
This invigorating show will display endless energy as the drummers, band members and dancers provide journeys into the musical genres including Motown, Southern Gospel, Big Band Swing Era, and American Jazz. While percussionists will be featured, they will be leading the cast of trumpets, trombones, tubas, French horns, Euphoniums, Basses and even saxophones to a show-stopping marching band extravaganza that parades out of the football stadium onto center stage in a theatrical production.
The 40+ member troupe will “parade” into town after spending the previous three weeks touring and presenting 14 shows in California, Utah, Arizona and Nevada. Their only other stop in Texas will be at the Winspear Opera House in Dallas, before continuing on for another 18 shows in Arkansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, Mississippi, Pennsylvania and Maryland.
As part of the Boerne Performing Arts FOR KIDS program, Drumline Live will present a special student outreach show, during school hours, which will afford the opportunity for 1,000 local students to experience this performing arts event at no cost to the students. Authentic Custom Homes and The GVTC Foundation, sponsors for this event, are partnering with Boerne Performing Arts to present world-class performing arts in Kendall County. This project is supported in part by awards from the Texas Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
