Music fans,

Don't miss MUSIC CLUB WEEK starting THIS TUESDAY, 4/23 and running until FRIDAY, 4/27. The week will include three amazing events, all brought to you by the folks of the YORK COLLEGE MUSIC CLUB!!!

1) YCMC MUSIC MOVIE TIME: Blast! (2001)

DATE/LOCATION: Tuesday 4/24 @ NOON / Academic Core 2M05

Blast! is a Broadway production created by James Mason and Cook Group Incorporated, the director and organization formerly operating the Star of Indiana Drum and Bugle Corps. It was the 2001 Winner of the Tony Award for "Best Special Theatrical Event" and also won the 2001 Emmy Award for "Best Choreography". Blast!'s instrumentation is exclusively brass and percussion, a nod to the show's roots in the drum and bugle corps activity. Blast!'s performers use trumpets, flugelhorns, mellophones, baritone horns, tubas, trombones (including one on a unicycle during "Gee, Officer Krupke!"), flugabones (a compact form of valve trombone), french horns, and a full complement of percussion instruments including snare drums, tenor drums, bass drums, xylophones. vibraphones and marimbas, tympani, and other standard percussion equipment.
