Hawthorne Caballeros present their 2016 70th Anniversary production…
Red, White & Black
With a deep rich history spanning the last seventy years, the Hawthorne Caballeros Drum and Bugle Corps has always stayed true to their identity of flare and entertainment while also progressing forward with contemporary productions. Red, White & Black will be unlike any other anniversary production for the Caballeros as it will tell the story of this beloved performance ensemble and even write the story that has yet to come. In three movements this production will honor the past with variations on Ernesto Lecuona’s classic composition “Malaguena”, cherish the present with Adele’s “Million Years Ago” from her newest album 25 and inspire the future with a modern and dark original piece composed by Andrew Yozviak.
The Hawthorne Caballeros have set many records over their 70-year history. They have won the DCA World Championships 9 times, the American Legion National Title 16 times and the New Jersey State American Legion title 43 times just to name a few. In 1989 the fans voted the Hawthorne Caballeros their favorite all-age drum corps of all time during DCA’s 25th anniversary celebration.
Director Emeritus is the late James J. Costello Jr., Business Manager is Alan Katz, Operations Manager is Lou Storck and Program Coordinator is Matthew Hurley. This year’s production features musical compositions and arrangements by Andrew Yozviak and Marc Garside, colorguard design by Bobbey Biddle, and visual design by Duane DeWire. Adam Freeman, Michelle Adcock, Marc Garside and Bobbey Biddle are the 2016 caption heads. The Caballeros are lead onto the field by drum majors Joshua Jenkins, Chris Fontanelle, Brittany Baselice, and Kimberly Roman.
