This is a milestone for the program as we presented our longest production to date, as the corps completed it’s season.
The corps 2018 Production; “American Struggle“, detailed moments in our shared American history featuring selections such as Battle Hymn of the Republic, Strange Fruit, Stand Up For Something, Sing Sing Sing/Stars & Stripes Forever. Featuring an innovative on-field hip-hop performance, along with the corps first usage of electronics, small backdrops, stage lighting, and more; the corps 2018 production was a step forward for the organization.
The Saints would like to thank Flex High for their support and facilities for the season along with our numerous sponsors and church supporters who provided facilities on tour. Without community support what we do wouldn’t be possible and we’d like to extend a warm thank you.
