Presenting a complex & more sophisticated show – that still includes their trademark ‘movement’ skills – the latest edition of the Riverside Community College Winter Drum Line won their 3rd consecutive Southern California Percussion Alliance Championship and 5th overall. Loosely based on the suites of cards in the deck, the show includes 5 movements… Spades – aggressively represented by music from Conan the Barbarian, Diamonds – represented by the music from a TV commercial, Hearts – represented by “Shape of My Heart” by Sting, and Clubs – a funky club dance scene… and the Joker – the last movement that includes a bit of everything.
Congratulations to the hard-working and talented performers and the outstanding staff that reads like a ‘who’s who’ of the indoor and outdoor percussion activity: Sean Vega, Jim Wunderlich, Mike Jackson, Paul Locke, Brian Dinkel, Chad McCormick, Chris Velez and our techs: Pete Sapadin, Fernando Miller, Cory Blee and Jen Swanek. The costumes are by Bobby Moffett and the floor is by Michael Bierek. The director is Gary Locke.
The RCC juggernaut rolls in to Richmond, Indiana April 19-20 for rehearsals and then on to Dayton for theÊ WGI Championships, at the Erwin J. Nutter Center, April 21-22.
