Music in Motion is a local show of modern marching bands competing against each other in Stoke on Trent.

These competitions take place all across the world from England, to France, Japan and America.

The modern marching bands are a musical, educational activity that challenges it’s performers to the highest level.  Marching in fast paced formations to complex musical arrangements these performers play percussion and brass instruments whilst on the move and quite often moving at a very fast pace.  The colour guard section performs intricate, choreographed skills with rifles, sabres and flags on six foot poles.

A selection of music is played which may be familiar, but however you may have heard this music before, non will have placed the extraordinary physical demands upon a performer than that of Drum Corps.

Please join us at Northwood Stadium on the 15th July 2012 for an afternoon of entertainment.

The Championship and International winners, Kidsgrove Scouts and Kidsgrove Scouts Juniors (from Kidsgrove, Stoke on Trent) will be performing ahead of their tour to Holland and the USA.
