In a amazing journey that will leave you breathless, we embark on an epic odyssey following the Norse God of Thunder himself as he strides boldly into the heart of battle! Our journey begins with the first movement, a spellbinding portrayal of the majestic city of Asgard, a realm of unparalleled grandeur and awe.
But the tale only begins to unfurl as we delve into the second movement, an awe-inspiring spectacle that witnesses the birth of none other than Thor's legendary weapon, the awe-striking Mjolnir! The heavens themselves shall tremble as this mighty hammer is forged in the fires of destiny.
The third movement, an ode to Odin, the All-Father, will transport you to the very heart of the cosmos, where gods and mortals alike bow before his infinite might and wisdom.
Yet, the grand crescendo of our epic narrative unfolds in the final movement, a titanic clash between the God of Thunder and the enigmatic Frost Giants! Prepare to witness a battle of such magnitude that the very Earth beneath your feet shall quake, as the fate of worlds hangs in the balance.
Join us, dear audience, as we weave a tapestry of valor and myth, where every note, every step, and every heartbeat resounds with the might of Thor's Hammer. This performance shall etch itself into the annals of your soul, leaving you forever changed by the thunderous power of our musical saga!

Amidst the backdrop of a dark and stormy night, a solitary figure sits inside, entranced by the mesmerizing glow of their smartphone, lost in an overstimulating digital world.
A sudden power outage shatters their electronic cocoon, leaving them in a daunting darkness. Disconnected from their digital lifeline, they grapple with a lack of meaning.
As the storm subsides, their senses gradually calm and tune in to everything that usually goes unnoticed—the gentle windchimes, distant nightbird melodies, and gentle raindrops. A newfound joy blooms from this reconnection with nature's simple beauty.
An abrupt interruption—the power returns, the circuit reconnects. The habitual cycle of smartphone dependence triggers an internal struggle.
They yearn to break free, to recapture the unfiltered happiness found beyond the screen. But as the glow beckons, the journey to liberation proves easier said than done.
Join us in 'Circuit Break,' a modern tale of our struggle to find the balance between the digital and natural worlds. Break free from destructive cycles, reset the circuit, and rediscover the symphony of living authentically.

"A Single Step"

Standing on a promontory overlooking the cloudy land below, an adventurer pauses to survey the terrain that stretches out before him. In Caspar David Friedrich’s 1818 masterpiece Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog, we are connected to the feeling of anticipation before venturing into the unknown. We all live lives filled with moments of wandering, searching, and climbing, never knowing what will come next. All we can do is move forward in bravery, remembering that “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”.

“La Vida explores the wonders and complications of a human life trying to live in a structured society. Our first act with Bolero sounds like a serious march. There is a monotonous and repetitive theme which can be compared to the daily structured life of the average human who is just trying to fit in and work hard like everyone else to make it. Libertango then opens up and offers a sense of freedom from the repetitive labor of before. Oblivion is a realization of failure over trying to achieve something different in this life and the fear of never being able to move on from it. And we finally end with Livin La Vida Loca, the final movement is about taking a chance on a colorful and vibrant life. There is risk and there is fear, but this is what living is about. This is the Life!”

“The Cosmos is all that is or was or ever will be. Our feeblest contemplations of the Cosmos stir us -- there is a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation, as if a distant memory, of falling from a height. We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries.”
-        Carl Sagan, Cosmos

Humans have gazed in awe at the night sky since our first days walking the earth. The heavens bear our mythology, our curiosity, our wonder. Our new and expanding knowledge of the Cosmos only reinforces the immensity and the marvel of the universe. Join the 2023 Hanford Marching Band on a journey beyond the planets and into the greatest of mysteries.
