WP in session

WP-thumbRimshot out of a cannon: Spirit of America’s Winter Percussion ensemble is well on their way to a fabulous show for 2010! The 25 members are exploring works by Aaron Copland, in a musical and visual depiction of rivers, plains and mountains. These young musicians are up to lots of new tricks: besides perfecting their new music and drill, they’re now playing hand bells, and they’re working on a three-way battery, pit and dance swap mid-number! Stay tuned for updates from WP. For their camp and show schedule, click here.

Story: Exploration 2010

The writing team met to narrow down the story line for Exploration 2010, and this year, we’re going to Appalachia! Our story follows a photographer named Annie, who launches out from her small hometown in the Midwest, to find her way in New York City. When success and fame begin to outweigh her integrity, she is redirected by her Nana to go back to her roots and find her stardust.
