Welcome To The Davis High Band
Davis High School is celebrating its Centennial Year, and the band will be a big part of the celebration. The 2013 Field Show is titled "Here and There." Composer David Reeves has masterfully combined the "Our Director" march, Cohan's "Over There," Debussy's "In White and Black," the hymn "A Mighty Fortress," Joplin's "Maple Leaf Rag," and the haunting melody "Taps" to create a show that takes us back to the period between 1914 and 1918.
Davis High opened its doors in 1914, the same year that World War 1 broke out in Europe. Our show takes the audience through the celebration of graduation to Europe, where pain and suffering reigned. We then come back to America, where our country continues to enjoy music like ragtime as they try to ignore what is happening "over there." Finally, we realize that America can no longer ignore the war and the show takes us all "over there" and into the conflict. The show concludes with the band marching off to Cohan's "Over There" while two trumpet players remain playing "Taps."
We look forward to creating a masterpiece that will pay homage to the first graduates of our school, especially those who left their home to serve their country during the war.
Thank you for all those who have helped us succeed in our 2014 marching band season. Without your help we couldn't do what we do.
