2016 Show Announcement

posted Apr 6, 2016, 11:44 AM by Kevin Hebert   [ updated Apr 6, 2016, 11:56 AM ]

The 2016 Field Show is entitled "Fly Away."  The show has many different meanings but the main theme is "leaving the nest."  There comes a time when we must leave the comfort of our home and start our own life.  In this show you will see the beginning of spring which leads a young lady to engagement and finally flying away from home to start her new life.  Below you will see a preview video followed by a video with the computer generated midi recording of the music, and a video of another band performing this show last year.
