Opus X takes on Taiwan!
Opus X has returned from our trip to Taiwan and it was an absolutely amazing experience! The Blue Knights Drum and Bugle Corps, accompanied by Ascend Performing Arts, invited select members of Opus X to participate in a 50 person ensemble that traveled to Taiwan to participate in educational clinics, a parade, and a field performance. While there, we performed at the Taoyuan Band Festival on Saturday, May 24th and we also represented Drum Corps International as a Sound Sport and Drum Line Battle exhibition ensemble.
Our field production was entitled, “An American Journey” which featured the music from Aaron Copland’s “Appalachian Spring” and “Red Pony.” Our production was designed and choreographed by our very own Rob Billings, who has been an influential part of the Blue Knights organization for many years. It was an experience of a lifetime and we thank you all so much for your love and support as we expanded the love for this amazing activity overseas.
