Description:

    "Relic" is a production filled with mystery, intrigue and excitement. The haunting sounds of Middle Earth and Gregorian chant transport the audience to an ancient time. The programmatic score paints the story of the Relic. A sacred ritual begins as the Relic is first presented in a solemn procession. At the moment of the Relic's celebrated arrival, it is stolen and eventually broken apart into 2 pieces. The circular piece represents the Gypsies and is characterized by Middle-Eastern influenced music with a unique tambourine and the triangular piece represents the Warriors. 
      The program concludes with a menacing battle march as the pieces come back together in an epic recap of the opening arrival music. With wide room for interpretation and a driving energy that will get everyone on their feet, this production will challenge your staff and students to push it to the max! 
       "Relic" was originally commissioned by the Chino Hills HS marching band in the fall of 2011 and was released for the 2013 indoor season. This is a custom version adapted for indoor percussion. This show was a PSA finalist at WGI championships with Mechanicsburg HS in 2013.
