Our 2024 Drum Corps Production

It’s 1930s New York City

…The rhythm of the city is pulsing in your veins!

The lights dim, the crowd hushes. A lone sound pierces the silence, a melody yearning for escape. You and the Columbus Saints are on a Friday night mission – Harlem bound, with the Savoy Ballroom and the legendary Chick Webb Orchestra calling your name!

“Excuse me, how do I get to Harlem?”  Everyone you ask gives the same answer: “Take the A Train!” But fate has other plans. A wrong turn lands you in the heart of Chinatown, the neon lights a dizzying kaleidoscope.  Undeterred, you bust out a Shanghai Shuffle, your body a compass searching for the beat of Harlem.

Suddenly, a storm brews. Stormy Weather descends, a downpour mirroring the anxieties of the times. Yet, the rhythm persists, a defiant pulse against the rain.

Finally, you burst through the doors of the Savoy! The electrifying energy of the crowd washes over you. The music explodes – a Harlem Congo erupts!

This is Lenox Avenue At Midnight! A journey through the heart of a city, a testament to the enduring power of music and the relentless pursuit of joy.

Get ready for a night you won’t forget!
