"This is the most complex show the Terra Nova Band has ever done," band director Michael Pens says. In
its first full performance, this past Saturday at the Cupertino Tournament of Bands, the show took first place in its division. (The band also took a first place in Parade Marching at the tournament.)
The field show, "The Fall of Troy," tells the classic Greek myth of Paris stealing the heart of Helen, Queen of Sparta; of King Menelaus pursuing the couple to Troy with his army and killing Paris; and of the "gift" Trojan horse that carried Greek soldiers into Troy to destroy the city. The show incorporates music from the movies "Spartacus" and "Gladiator," "Adagio for Strings" by Samuel Barber, and "Vesuvius" by Frank Ticheli. Marching formations, color guard work, narration, props, and a climactic sword fight combine with the music to create a rich program."
