Tune into our recent edition of Ringside Update to get this week's stats for Fusion Core!
In this update Program Coordinator Marc Garside has a behind the scenes look at Fusion Core's 2023 program: Rise UP!
Things are going really well as we put the finishing musical touches onto Fusion Core's 2023 production Rise Up! The show will tell the story of the journey and struggles of a fighter, from rock bottom to the top of the world! We will explore the things that journey has in common with our drum corps journey.
Currently the brass score is nearing completion with the percussion not far behind. The arrangements by Key Poulan and Grant Butters featuring Rise Up by Andra Day as well as material from the Rocky movies and original compositions are so well done, you can clearly hear the storyline of the show throughout the music, and we haven't even started incorporating the visual elements yet! As the indoor season is wrapping up, we still have some opportunities to join the core! There are a few brass positions available, there's a bass drum position, possibly a vibe/aux percussion spot, and potentially a snare drum position but there's been a lot of interest coming for that already so move fast if you're interested! Just visit fusioncore.org for additional information and to register. We're also seeking a boxing character for our show, in the role of the big bad guy. No musical experience is necessary for that, but if you want to be a key part of our show, and think you could portray a big, mean, angry boxer then contact us right away! Color guard auditions are coming up on April 29th. Our colorguard staff under the direction of Lindsay Beaumont and Nick Ashley are amazing at what they do. Creative and effective designers, and wonderful educators, they're the best! I can't wait to see the color guard become a part of this awesome show we're putting together! That's all for now. I'm excited to find the few missing people we need to fill the last few spots. That's so important because the best ideas and vision only go so far, the people on the field bring it all to life. I hope you can be a part of it, it's going to such a fun show and an awesome season for us in 2023! See you on the 50!
