"TWIST-IT" in 2015

The Reading Buccaneers Drum & Bugle Corps is proud to announce its 2015 production, “Twist-It.” With this year’s production, the Buccaneers will take you on a unique and unforgettable musical and visual journey full of unexpected and entertaining twists and turns.

The Buccaneers will build upon the success of recent productions with a very ambitious program, highlighted by a spirited return to the corps’ classical music identity, but with a creative and modern twist added to each piece of music. Fans will recognize all of the music, but each chart will be infused with something unique and unexpected twists that will make the program engaging and entertaining, yet also forward-thinking and cutting-edge in the all-age drum corps activity.

 The twists and turns of the musical book will also be reflected in an ambitious visual program, which has become a Buccaneers hallmark. Look for lots of twisting, bending, shaping and re-shaping – not only in form but equipment as well – and other unexpected visual motifs to tie the program together.

 One of the enduring and compelling qualities of the drum corps activity is its ability to bring out the best in performers by giving them plenty of opportunities for growth that come from the unexpected twists and turns of the drum corps season. Above all else, the Buccaneers strive to provide our incredible members with an unforgettable experience in which they grow as people and as performers. This year’s program is a celebration of their journey.

 Musical selections include:

Pagliacci, by Ruggero Leoncavallo

Palladio, by Karl Jenkins

Moonlight Sonata, by Ludwig von Beethoven

"Going the Distance” from Rocky, by Bill Conti

William Tell Overture, by Gioachino Rossini

Original music by Buccaneers designers Mark Lortz, Johnny Trujillo and Mike Lalli, along with other surprises you will know.

This is going to be an incredible journey. Join us for all the twists and turns!
