CIS marching ensemble prepares for upcoming season

Campbellsville Independent Schools Marching Ensemble is preparing for its upcoming season.

 

Band members spent two weeks this summer practicing music and learning this year’s show, which is entitled The Black Mirror Effect.

 

According to Band Director Zach Shelton, the marching ensemble will be present a unique show that explores the hidden aspects of social media and the effect it can have on our persona and attitudes.

 

Band members will use large props that move and change throughout the show.

 

Costumes will also change, and a soloist will tell the audience a story.

 

This year’s musical selections include “Sound of Silence” by Simon and Garfunkel, “Man in the Mirror” by Michael Jackson and original compositions written by M. Jordan Williams.

 

The ensemble includes about 30 playing members, five color guard and several volunteers to create special effects.

 

CIS competes in the Kentucky Music Educators Association marching band circuit, in Class A, and in the Mid-States Band Association circuit, also in Class A.
