Raiders Announce 2007 Program
The Raiders Drum & Bugle Corps of Wayne, NJ are Proud to announce its 2007 Drum Corps International Competitive Show – Musical Selections from “WEST SIDE STORY”. The selections from Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story will also feature musical highlights from the Stan Kenton Orchestra. Music will include,- Intro to Stan Kenton’s Prologue/I Have A Love/Cool – One Hand, One Heart – Dance at the Gym/Mambo/Taunting Scene (Bernstein/ Kenton)- Tonight.
We’ve been talking about doing this show for a number of years now, said Tom Maiello, Raiders corps director. “Over the past few seasons, we have had success with Fan Friendly, but equally challenging programs. In 2005 we played “Jesus Christ Superstar”. The crowds that came to our Division 2/3 shows liked the recognizable music that we and several other corps played. So in 2006 we again went with “Coast to Coast”, music by Gorb, Methany and Ellis. The fans enjoyed it and the judging community really appreciated what we were doing. During these winter months, you can see that our students and educational staff really enjoys playing and teaching this music. As an organization we want to be able to entertain and be competitive. We have found that combination with this year’s music and look forward to presenting it to drum corps fans everywhere.
