2012 Mandarins Program Description
The Mandarins’ 2012 show “Prophecy” is an original program composed and designed by Key Poulan (Design Coordinator and Brass Arranger), Tony Nunez (Music Coordinator and Percussion Arranger), Geoff Longo (Visual and Color Guard Caption Manager), and Drew Farmer (Visual Coordinator and Drill Designer). Our program is based on the Mayan calendar prophesizing that December 21, 2012 is the end of the calendar and strikes the beginning of a new era. An ancient Maya text has emerged from the jungles of Guatemala confirming the so-called “end date” of the Maya calendar, Dec. 21, 2012. Considered one of the most significant hieroglyphic finds in decades, the 1,300-year-old inscription contains only the second known reference to the “end date.” Carved on a stone staircase, the inscription was found at the ruins of La Corona, in the dense rainforest of northwestern Guatemala.
