Yamaha 2010 Drum Corps Preview – Carolina Crown

“A Second Chance”

What if you had the ability to take another shot at a decision, opportunity, or moment?  How might choosing a different direction lead to alternate opportunities? Performing musical selections inspired by these possibilities, the corps’ repertoire includes the Second Symphonies of Mahler and Khatchaturian, Danzon No.2 by Marquez; as well as Elgar’s Nimrod, a classically reflective piece that hints at the Second movement of Beethoven’s Sonata Pathétique.  Conceptual motifs, a richly coordinated palette, and a touch of nostalgic detail will further illustrate this romantic, yet existential, theme.  Carolina Crown 2010 proudly presents: “A Second Chance.”
