First on the field is Cadence from Guilford, United Kingdom. Their 2018 program is entitled "I Am Nature".

The show opens with the pit and narration from Nature (some call her Mother Nature, apparently). She says she doesn't really need people. Kind of snarky, really.

After the narration, the drum line enters as well.

Low brass comes in and starts with the diamond song. I forget the name, but it's by Karl Jenkins. I have a program but I literally have no place to put it or access it.

Nice long sustained chord by the brass building to the first impact of the show!

Mellophone on a platform plays the Pavane for a Dead Princess melody.

More narration from another aspect of nature. We've gone pop with the music, but I don't recognize the song.

Park and blow section on the pop song. Guard on flags with different types of flowers on them. Mellophone soloist back on the platform to finish the song.
