A plea for peace expressed by means of our performers, we bring a rhythmically and harmonically exciting program to you this year. Et in Terra Pax, meaning Peace on Earth, musically and visually represents the viciousness and senselessness of war. Fear of violence and destruction is sensed throughout the program with bombastic and aggressive sounds, while an underlying theme of peace and tranquility lays the foundation. Whilst the recapitulation of battle cries echo, we attempt to make way in the end for our sincerest hope: May peacefulness replace cruelty in everyday life too.

Show title: Oasis
In three acts: Pursuit - Mirage - Destiny, the Cascade Sound will take
you on a journey in search of the Oasis.
In act one, through the driving rhythms of "Bangkok" - the band pursues
their destination through the desert. Tchaikovsky's "Arabian Dance"
provides a canvas for act two: Mirage. Look for the emergence of water
- then it fades. In act three, after the band reaches their destiny "A
Night in Tunisia" evokes jubilation and celebration.

Show Title TRIAD
TRIAD is an original composition for marching band written by composer Russ Newbury. Both the musical and visual concepts generate varied images of THREE. The most obvious orchestrational textures are exposed in the interplay between brass, woodwind and percussion ensembles. Musically, such devices as Triads (three note chords), three note melodic patterns, and triplet rhythms are employed, to further enhance the concept of THREE. The entire production of TRIAD is inspired by the current Drum and Bugle Corps movement that is both, visually and musically stimulating.

Additional Comments and information:
The 2006 Mt. Spokane program brings to life the epic tale from Cirque Du Soleil's latest masterpiece "KA." KA is a tale of two twins separated at a young age, broken from their destiny only to journey through life on their way back to each other. The opening movement represents the struggle and separation of the twins. Movement 2 explores the depth of the bond twins share with one another: their emotions, thoughts, and desires. The culmination of the show starts with a drum solo and battle sequence on the field leading to the reuniting of the twins. The members of the Band would like to thank the parents for their dedication in making this years epic program a success.
Ladies and Gentlemen please sit back and enjoy the experience that is KA.
