Song suggestions for a drum corps show

Hey! So I'm starting work on a project called "Wake Up" and I'm looking for ideas of some possible songs to put in it. They can either be from this website or big professional works.

The show theme is more on the depressing/somber side with a twist at the very end. (Not spoiling anything yet) But help would be appreciated with the musical selections and also a percussion writer would be awesome!

Thanks!

2112

Hey, I was wondering if anybody has found a very good "FULL SHOW" based on the song 2112, if not I was maybe thinking of trying to make one. I know that there is one by some college band that is pretty good but it is only like a 3 min show and I was looking for like a full, and well done, HS or DCI show. If I end up making a show based off of this, please also let me know if you'd be interested in helping me :) THX fellow DCI lovers!

Christmas Contest - Win Prizes!!

Hey Everyone,

I thought it might be a fun idea to create a contest to arrange a Christmas song. It can be for drum corps, or marching band, or whatever... but the rules are simple:

1 - You must be a member of this group
2 - You must post your arrangement here
3 - You must submit before December 20, 2017

It is also important to mention that it is not necessarily the best arrangement that can win, but the most interesting or unique (not necessarily technically the best) can be chosen.

The judge for the contest will be Key Poulan!

There will also be 2 categories - 18 and Under and Over 18.

First prize winner in each category will receive the DCI 2017 Blu-Ray Deluxe Bundle (https://store.dci.org/collections/audio-video/products/dcirnv8103-2017-blu-ray-deluxe-bundle)

Second prize winners will receive 2 tickets to any DCI show (except finals).

Third prize winners will receive a DCI sweatshirt (or from the drum corps of your choice).

I have also posted a template that can be used as a starting point. You can feel free to use this basic arrangement as a starting point for your own arrangement of the same song:

Christmas Show Mvt 1

In need of a writer for Battery and Pit percussion for my currently unnamed Christmas show. The first movement is pretty much complete. The first movement features Carol of the Bells and a small portion of We Wish You a Merry Christmas, as that is foreshadowing the theme of the finale. It is majorly in 3/4, with the last section being in 4/4. There is two drum breaks in the opener, one being right after the hit, and after the runs in section C. If interested, please let me know!
