Description:

       "Through the Ages" is a journey through Earth and Human history that provides an interesting backdrop for this percussion show with hit-points including the Ice Age, Dark Ages, Age of enlightenment, and Modern Age. Each of the ages brings something new to the production that can be represented visually and musically. There is an intriguing progression that is more about creating unique environments rather than doing a show about “evolution." However, ending with the Modern Age and bringing a more overt use of electronics creates a natural resolution to the end of the show. The variety of musical and visual opportunities will provide the design team and students with a killer vehicle and a totally fresh concept.
     This show was originally commissioned for marching band for the fall of 2013 and was released for the 2015 indoor season. This is a custom version adapted for indoor percussion. This show was a PSA finalist at WGI championships with Foothill HS in 2017.
