2017 Henry Clay High School Marching Band Show Synopsis
2017 HCMB Show Title: UP IN THE AIR
As children we are captivated with the sky. The depth of wonder and excitement overtake our senses as we ponder the possibilities. Dreams of jumping…lifting off…flying…dance into one grand adventure in our minds. UP IN THE AIR is the story of this adventure. Utilizing Kites, Hoola Hoops, Swiss Balls, and a plethora of various sized fabrics, we enter into a child’s dream world of what it would be like to fly, to be UP IN THE AIR. Energy builds as we try to fly, as we persistently put forth the effort to getting off the ground and becoming one with the clouds. As every great dreamer’s mantra goes, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again”. Our curiosities create beautiful and inspirational musical and visual moments, connecting and pulling the heartstrings of those watching our production. Our efforts are in not in vain, as we build to the last moment…taking off…flying…experiencing and believing in the glory and ecstasy that is…UP IN THE AIR…
