FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

May 8, 2017

The NHS Band Staff revealed the competitive field show design for the 2017 Purple Regiment at Monday’s band booster meeting. The show, with a working title called “Fade to Black”, will explore the music of classical music composer, Ludwig von Beethoven. The show aims to portray some of Beethoven’s best and most beloved masterworks; however, with a darker and dissonant light chronicling the composer’s journey and struggle with hearing loss.

Returning again this year is program designer and consultant, Austin Greene (Raleigh). Austin is joined by music arranger, Kent Baker.

Stay tuned for more information!
