Sep 28 by Paul Katula ... This band doesn't just have a theme; it has a message. Narration at the beginning and twice throughout the program, including recorded quotes from Neil Armstrong and Martin Luther King Jr, is very effective and teaches as it entertains. The conclusion of the first movement made good use of the flags with the band in concentric circles. It'll be beautiful with some minor polishing of the flag synchronization, so I suppose there's some work to do on the visuals, in addition to putting more movement into the show. But, when "Jupiter" came on after Neil Armstrong's famous quote about how we go to the moon for the same reason salmon swim upstream, I could not think of a more fitting connection between the narration and the music. That clicked.
