Show Title: 5.18

Musical Selections: "Majestic Mountain" "Spirit Lake" "Eruption" "Rebirth" Music written by Jeff Chambers


The Naches Valley Ranger Marching band presents their 2014 field show 5.18 (five-eighteen)! This show presents both the beauty and destruction of one of the biggest land marks in Washington State. Mount St. Helens caused one of Washington’s biggest natural disasters on May eighteenth 1980. This show starts before the eruption and presents the “Majestic Mountain” and its surrounding valley using a grand flute duet and lush chorales. We then move to the beautiful “Spirit Lake” and its flowing water. The percussion then enters as the eruption starts with driving music and an aggressive alto sax solo. To finish the show we depict the rebirth of the Mount St. Helens valley and the return of the “Majestic Mountain”. This year’s show was written by Jeff Chambers for the Naches Ranger band. I hope you enjoy 5.18 (five-eighteen).

SHOW TITLE: “Quidam”
Set to the music of Jay Dawson, the entire show is imagined by a bored girl named Zoé who is alienated and ignored by her parents. She dreams up the whimsical world of Quidam as a means of escaping the monotony of her life.[1]
The show's title refers to the feature character, a man without a head, carrying an umbrella and a bowler hat. Quidam is said to be the embodiment of both everyone and no one at the same time. According to Cirque du Soleil literature "Quidam: a nameless passer-by, a solitary figure lingering on a street corner, a person rushing past. ... One who cries out, sings and dreams within us all."[1]

Rise of the Samurai Warrior
I.        Ronin/Bushido
II.        Ken-Jutsu
III.        Fumeiyo Yori Shi Wo
Travel with us as we take a journey to the era of the?? (samurai warrior). At first, we encounter a wandering samurai, living the way of the warrior via the seven virtues (chugi, gi, jin, makoto, meiyo, rei, yuki) and serving as his own master. This simple life is enhanced through his study of kenjutsu, pursuing his understanding of the art and method of the sword. Fresh in knowledge and skill, our brave samurai pursues a life of frugality, loyalty, mastery of the martial arts, and honor the guiding principle of fumeiyo yori shi wo; that is, death before dishonor. Domo arigato soshite subete ni heiwa.
