Reading Buccaneers, Twin Valley HS Band, Present 6th Annual Spring Preview
The Reading Buccaneers Drum & Bugle Corps and the Twin Valley High School Band will host the 6th Annual Spring Preview, a Drum & Bugle Corps Concert, on Saturday, May 8, 2010, at 7:00 p.m. The concert will take place in the Twin Valley High School auditorium, 4897 S.

In just six years, the Spring Preview has become a staple of the indoor drum and bugle corps concert calendar and features some of the world’s best all-age competing and alumni corps in exhibition.

The concert will be the public’s first opportunity to hear the nine-time and five-time defending Drum Corps Associates World Champion Reading Buccaneers, as the corps unveils its 2010 music program, ROME. The corps’ repertoire includes Pines of Rome and Roman Festivals by Ottorino Respighi and “Adagio,” from Spartacus, by Aram Khachaturian.
