Blue Saints Return To Active Competitive Status
Friday May 15th 2009, marked the approval by DCI for the competitive return of the Blue Saints Drum and Bugle Corps.
The Blue Saints announce their return to the competitive circuit in 2009 after a 2 year hiatus. As Canada’s oldest and continuously active Drum Corps, the Blue Saints have a rich history of entertaining audiences since 1952 and are pleased to be on the field once again. The corps is proud to represent the Greater Sudbury area, both at home and abroad. This year’s production is appropriately entitled; ‘Aurora Borealis’ in reference to the numerous hues that brighten the night skies on the 46th parallel.
Using selections from the well known Cirque du soleil, the corps will draw upon the fast paces and unparalleled movements that have made this production famous world wide. The repertoire this year features award winning composer Benoît Jutras and starts with the rhythmic pulse of the opener ‘Incantation’, followed by the beautiful ballad ‘Shadowplay’, closing with the driving energy of ‘Ninkou Latora’. We hope you enjoy the show.
