Opus X takes on Taiwan!
Opus X has recently been presented with the amazing opportunity to expand our passion for our art form overseas. The Blue Knights Drum and Bugle Corps, accompanied by Ascend Performing Arts, have invited select members of Opus X to participate in a 50 person ensemble that will be traveling to Taiwan to participate in educational clinics, a parade, and a field performance. While there, we will be performing at the Taoyuan Band Festival on Saturday, May 24th and we will also be representing Drum Corps International as a Sound Sport and Drum Line Battle exhibition ensemble.
Our field production is entitled, “An American Journey” which features the music from Aaron Copland’s “Appalachian Spring” and “Red Pony.” Our production is designed and choreographed by our very own Rob Billings, who has been an influential part of the Blue Knights organization for many years. We are very much looking forward to this opportunity and we look forward to keeping you all updated as our journey commences.
