The Columbians Drum and Bugle Corps is proud to present their 2017 program “Do Not Go Gentle”.
In the poignant words of poet Dylan Thomas “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night…Rage, Rage Against the Dying of the Light!”
As we begin our program, a darkness threatens to extinguish the light within. The haunting strains of Edvard Grieg’s “Funeral March” woven over Samuel Barber’s “Adagio for Strings” darkens the stage as we transition further into turmoil through Elliot del Borgo’s “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night”. The Columbians bring to life the battle to hold on to what is light and good when external forces push toward darkness and destruction. An emotional transformation takes place with Samuel Barber’s masterpiece “Adagio for Strings”, and the victorious tones of “A Mighty Fortress” resonates within as we emerge from trials stronger and full of light!
Join us on our journey in what is certain to be our most emotional and stunning production yet, with music arranged by Russ Newbury, percussion by Chris Grant, choreography by Kat Lagge and Anna Newbury, and drill by Dillon Miller.
