Performed @ Bloemencorso Bollenstreek 2009 (Flowercorso 2009)

Posted by jpluimers on 2009/04/26

Yesterday, the Senior Band of Adest Musica (the marching band where next year I hope to celebrate my 30th membership anniversary) participated in the 62nd edition of the Flower Parade in “de Bollenstreek“.
(Actually this is should formally be called “de Duin- and Bollenstreek”, as the complete “Bollenstreek” also includes two more regions in North Holland, and a few smaller areas on the South Holland islands).

The Senior Band has brass and percussion (no woodwinds, though the Stage Band orchestra part of Adest Musica has them).

It will compete during the World Music Contest 2009 in Kerkrade, so this was a great opportunity to show the public our new marches that we are going to play at the WMC: “Moving Force” and “to Fight and Win” (sorry Dutch link only) as well as the introductory march to the show “Up is Down” that bridges our previous show “Legends of the Seas” to the new show “the Musketeer”.

At the flower corso, also our new truck themed “the Musketeer” as well, click on the picture on the right to see an enlarged version.

A few videos of the Flower Parade with us performing are already on-line:

  1. Adest Musica Sassenheim – Bloemencorso 2009 – WMC / The  – 10 minute compilation
  2. Adest Musica Sassenheim – Bloemencorso 2009 – 2.5 minute compilation showing “Up is Down”
  3. Adest Musica Sassenheim – Bloemencorso 25 april 2009 – very short fragment, but the only one showing my wife (light blue shirt) and brother (khaki jacket) having back-packs with fresh water!

So now you know what I do to balance all the keyboard work I do :-)
