| |

The Reading Buccaneers Drum & Bugle Corps and the Twin Valley High School Band will host the 8th Annual Spring Preview, a Drum & Bugle Corps Concert, on Saturday, May 5, 2012, at 7:00 p.m. The concert will take place in the Twin Valley High School auditorium, 4897 S. Twin Valley Road, Elverson, PA 19520.

The Spring Preview has become a much-anticipated mainstay 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’s proceeds will benefit the Twin Valley High School band program and the Reading Buccaneers.

The concert will be the public’s first opportunity to hear hometown Reading Buccaneers, as the corps unveils its 2012 music program, The Black Symphony. The corps’ repertoire includes original music from brass arranger Mark Lortz, The Four Sections for Orchestra, mvt IV by Steve Reich, New World from Dancer in the Dark by Bjork Guomundsdottir and 1812 Overture by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

In addition to the Buccaneers, patrons will be treated to performances by the 2010 Drum Corps Associates Class A champion Fusion Core (Morris County, NJ), the Brassmen (Brooklyn, NY), Selden Cadets (Selden, Long Island, NY), Reilly Raiders (Willow Grove, PA), and the Reading Buccaneers Alumni (Reading, PA).

In addition to the concert, the day presents a unique opportunity for drum corps aficionados to spend time meeting members from multiple corps and reconnect with old friends and many activity luminaries.

Reserved seats are $15 apiece, and general admission seats are $13 apiece, and will be sold at the door.
