The Caballeros have often been on the forefront of innovative and modern show designs while maintaining their signature Latin identity. This year’s show will be memorable and exciting as the program opens with H. Owen Reed’s “La Fiesta Mexicana”, a staple of concert band literature. The show will weave into the strands of “La Fiesta Mexicana” and the Led Zeppelin classic, “Stairway to Heaven”, throughout the entire program. Front Ensemble arranger, Tyler Sammons, will be using the Rodrigo y Gabriella version to accentuate the musicality of our keyboard players, also a trademark of the Caballeros musical ensemble in recent years. Percussion arranger, Paul Nalesnik, will explore new musical territory with the multicultural modern band Ojos de Brujo and their hit song “Zambra”, off of their album “Bari”. “Zambra”, combined with Paul’s arrangement, feels like it was tailored for the Cabs to bring “it” to the competition field. Closing out the show will be the familiar themes of Chick Corea’s “La Fiesta” combined with brass arranger, Dr. Andy Yozviak’s modern twist on this old drum corps classic will surely get the audience out of their seat.
