Imagine the sound 14 trumpets, 10 mellophones, 14 baritones and eight tubas! The horns of the Twin Cities-based River City Rhythm drum and bugle corps, along with director Bo Hoover and drum major Katherine Stone, join Steve Staruch for a big, bold and brassy experience.
The performers of River City Rhythm, who also include percussionists and color guard members, are in the midst of summer competitions and are at the top of their musical game. You can see their final Twin Cities performance at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 31, at Farmington High School, before they head to the DCI World Championships in Indianapolis in early August.
But first, get ready for a Regional Spotlight special event, recorded live at Central Presbyterian Church in downtown St. Paul. The RCR horns play two numbers from their 2019 field show, Breaking the News the title tune and the Beatles' "A Day in the Life" as well as the corps' song, the hymn "The Water Is Wide."
River City Rhythm also has granted permission for listeners to download an MP3 of the latter.
