  3. In the past few days, the Hurricanes have announced their 2016 Program & Design Team! See the information below, and click here for a clip from the local news station plugging our Open House, coming up on November 28 and 29! 2016 Connecticut Hurricanes Program Announcement The concept of Freedom is multifaceted. It is a concept that represents the opportunity to embrace a system of beliefs, to choose methods of expression, and the ability to pursue one’s dreams. It is the concept of Freedom that stands as a cornerstone of democracies around the world. The 2016 Hurricanes are celebrating this idea of Freedom and the opportunities it allows those who have it. Using the liberating and inspiring strains of “Amazing Grace” woven through the program, combined with other musical selections, the Hurricanes will explore varying aspects of Freedom. The repertoire will consist of: •. Amazing Grace •. Freedom by Michael W. Smith •. Now We Are Free (Nelle tue mani) by Andrea Bocelli, from Gladiator (Hanz Zimmer/Lisa Gerrard) •. Freedom Triology by Paul Halley & Theresa Thomason The Hurricanes hope you will celebrate with us the possibilities, realities, and blessings that Freedom can afford. Freedom is a liberating experience that we should never take for granted. 2016 Connecticut Hurricanes Design Team Announcement The Hurricanes are excited to announce their 2016 Design Team!

  4. I didn't see a thread for this show, to be hosted by the Hurricanes (and the Bridgeport Police Activities League) this Saturday. Here is the website. The show starts at 7:00 p.m. The venue is John F. Kennedy Stadium, which Google tells me is on U.S. Rte. 1 (North Ave.) between Park Ave. and Main Ave. in Bridgeport, CT (zip 06606). There are three corps performing in exhibition: Hawthorne Caballeros Alumni Connecticut Alumni Park City Pride And six in competition: Hurricanes Caballeros Kidsgrove Scouts Sunrisers Skyliners Excelsior The site doesn't say, but presumably those are in reverse performance order--and probably with the exhibition corps following. According to the seating chart, as of today, 218 of the 320 reserved seats (@ $15) have sold. No indication on how the general admission seats (@ $10) are selling. I am curious about the notation reading "Candadians order 14, 7 8". I won't be there, but I look forward to news from anyone who is.

The Connecticut Hurricanes Drum & Bugle Corps, in conjunction with the Connecticut Alumni Drum & Bugle Corps and the Park City Pride Combined Alumni Drum & Bugle Corps, are excited to announce a Celebration of 100 Years of Drum Corps in Connecticut. This memorable occasion will kick off on June 21, 2014 with a banquet celebration and conclude on August 23, 2014 with a combined performance by the three corps at the annual DCA Fanfare competition sponsored by the Hurricanes.

These combined active corps represent 100 years of activity.
