Hawthorne Caballeros Announce 2013 Program
The Hawthorne Caballeros are excited to present our 2013 Program, unRavel! Exploring the variant possibilities of the meaning of unRavel, the Caballeros 2013 design team will explore the complexity of unbundling the great compositions of Ravel, pull apart the passionate original compositions of Key Poulan and Rob Ferguson, and untangle the mysterious in a search for the elegant simplicity of performance perfection.
Led by our Show Coordinator, Rich Templin, the 2013 Design Team will include arrangements written by Brass Arranger Key Poulan, Percussion Arranger, Rob Ferguson, Visual Design created by Eric Robertshaw and Joe Heininger designing the Guard Program. Rich Templin is very excited about the 2013 Design Team. In the next few weeks they will be meeting in Pittsburgh, PA for an intensive design weekend to put the finishing touches on the 2013 program. Rich stated “there is no question that this design team collectively represents a brilliant and focused energy dedicated toward creating an amazing and entertaining production… and a platform that will continue to prepare the 2013 Hawthorne Caballeros for years to come. The Hawthorne Caballeros are a corps you will want to watch in 2013 and there will be no doubt that the Hawthorne Caballeros are building a corps of the future”.
