Description:

       "The Interview" is a show that intentionally will tug at your heart strings. Watching the video below in its entirety is very important to understand the inspiration for the show. The setting is a job interview, possibly having a small stage, desk and chairs where a person comes in to be interviewed.  They are unknowingly walking into what seems to be an impossible job description. Unlimited hours. No breaks. The most important job is also the world's toughest job.

       There can be a lot of coordinated audio/visual moments that correspond with these job descriptors, with the various members of the ensemble acting out the event while other sections are featured. Visually there could be a lot of business attire and an office feeling throughout. Anything to help push the show into a normal business job interview is the idea. Musically, we setup a variety of feels and moods to setup all of the different phases of the interview. Ultimately it culminates in a warm and uplifting shift of music as the real job is revealed. A salute to Mom's everywhere, this show will hit home with everyone! There is also an alternative sample that ends with "Parents" instead of just "Mom's" for you to use if you like.

        This show was originally commissioned for Marching band in the fall of 2016 and was released for the 2018 indoor season. This is a custom version adapted for indoor percussion.

-The Interview has been reserved for WGI championships 2018
