Carolina Crown to mix Queen, Puccini

by Drum Corps International

Somewhere, Queen's late, lamented lead singer, Freddie Mercury, is smiling. Carolina Crown's 2004 program will employ that group's classic rock staple, "Bohemian Rhapsody" (popularized in the mid-1990s by the "Wayne's World" films), along with Puccini's "La Boheme." The show's program will be entitled "Bohemia." Carolina Crown will open their audition season this-coming weekend with a remote audition event in the Dallas area. The complete list of upcoming audition camps is as follows: November 15 (Saturday, brass only) -- A new, one-day remote audition event to be held from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm at Berkner HS, Richardson, TX.
