    • The Planets by Gustav Holst
    • Star Trek: Into Darkness by Michael Giacchino

Tell the inspiring story of American space exploration with this medium difficulty show that melds together the tasteful use of narration samples with breathtaking solo moments and exciting climax points.

Movement 1 begins with an intriguing preshow and introduction formed by John F. Kennedy’s famous words. A distant trumpet duet brings us to a patriotic and expansive maestoso climax giving way to driving 5/4 section. Voice overs are timed to fit into phrases between melodic material keeping the music design focused. This section culminates in a liftoff sequence that can utilize props and is sure to get the audience on their feet. After the liftoff, A brass duet gives us the feeling of floating in zero gravity before driving to a energetic finish.

The ballad transition steers us deeper into space as the ensemble forms our solar system on the field with members of the guard present colored orbs for each planet which orbit around the field. Holst’s musical themes from “The Planets” are woven together as brass and woodwind section features finally giving way to the Jupiter Chorale. After a tender woodwind duet, a beautiful quote leads to a triumphant climax.

Transitioning from this moment we run into mechanical failure with a frenzied soundscape and percussion feature which drives us into darkness!
