Reading Buccaneers 9th Annual Spring Preview Concert

| |

The Reading Buccaneers Drum & Bugle Corps and the Twin Valley High School Band will host the 9th Annual Spring Preview, a Drum & Bugle Corps Concert, on Saturday, May 11, 2013, 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 the hometown and defending Drum Corps Associates world champion Reading Buccaneers, as the corps unveils its 2013 music program: Higher, Faster, Stronger. The corps’ repertoire includes Symphony No. 11, Mvt. IV, by Dmitri Shostakovich, original music by designers Mark Lortz, Johnny Trujillo and Greg Tsalikis, Chevaliers de Sangreal from “The DaVinci Code,” by Hans Zimmer, and Danse Bacchanale, from “Samson and Delilah,” by Camille Saint-Saens.

In addition to the Buccaneers, guests will be treated to performances by Fusion Core (Morris County, NJ), the Blessed Sacrament Golden Knights (Newark, NJ), Selden Cadets (Selden, Long Island, NY), Reilly Raiders (Willow Grove, PA), New York Skyliners Alumni (New York, NY) and the Reading Buccaneers Alumni (Reading, PA).

In addition to the concert, the day presents a unique opportunity for drum corps aficionados to meet 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. Tickets can be purchased in advance via PayPal at or by sending a check payable to “The Spring Preview,” along with a self-addressed stamped envelope, to The Spring Preview, 200 Columbia Avenue, Reading, PA 19605.
