the marching southerners 2020 production
"FATE OF THE GODS"
the jsu marching southerners invite you to join them on an epic musical journey to the wonders of greek and roman mythology’s most storied legends and characters with their 2020 production, FATE OF THE GODS.
…and so tragedy fell on mount olympus, leaving but only hope to ascend before elysium…
MOVEMENT ONE: ARES
hans zimmer’s the battle from gladiator provides the soundtrack for the production’s opening. every section in the southerners hornline is showcased in this searing production that sets the stage for the epic voyage ahead…
MOVEMENT TWO: APHRODITE/VENUS
in greek mythology, aphrodite was the goddess of love and beauty. her roman counterpart, venus, is showcased in appropriate fashion by the beautiful jsu ballerinas with robbie van leeuween’s venus. fire and desire collide in a fresh, contemporary arrangement of this classic number.
MOVEMENT THREE: POSEIDON
southerners’ ballads are intense and emotional productions in their own right and this year is no exception. the depths of wonder and the mighty majesty of the sea is presented with enya’s watermark. tender solos build to waves of sound with this ethereal and mystical soundscape…
zeus, the god of the sky, thunder, and lightning, was the ruler of all mythological gods on mount olympus and the 2020 finale definitely lives up to his name. thomas bergersen’s clock tower parade, a fierce and visceral composition, provides the source material for what could be the most epic (not to mention challenging) closer in southerners history.
there’s no room to sit back and relax… so just try to hang on… with the jsu marching southerners 2020 production,
FATE OF THE GODS.
