Marching Band Shows
Modern day treatments of powerhouse works appear in our marching band show arrangements. And from Rihanna to Radiohead, you can also discover new music by today’s composers, bands, and solo artists.
The marching band library is also home to our original music, where melody may still be king (or not). What’s more, many shows tip their hat to themes from famous classics and popular hits.
MIX AND MATCH
Although each Marching Band show has its own storyline, you can mix and match movements to create your own dramatic concept. If so, region protection does not apply.
