Thurrock Marching Brass Announces 2020 WGI Percussion Production

Thurrock Marching Brass is excited to confirm that their drumline group Drumsound45 will be competing in the WGI Percussion classes at a number of Indoor Music Games ( between March and May 2020. This is an exciting development for the group and for the 2020 season will also feature Thurrock Marching Brass’ Colourguard team, Thurrock Academy in their 2020 production “The Alley Cats”.

Speaking of the new project, Corps Director, David Friend says “We are so excited to be putting on a full WGI Percussion production featuring our entire Drumsound45 team, including TMB’s frontline performers as well as incorporating our incredibly talented Colourguard. The whole design team have developed a fun packed program that we will be bringing to the competitive indoor circuit for 2020. Indoor Music Games really offers us a great opportunity for our youngsters to showcase all that they can do and for the first time we are running two full musical productions at the same time during the IMG period. I don’t think we have laughed so much when going through the design stage so we hope that everyone enjoys the program as much as we are in putting all together”.

Adding to this, TMB’s Chairman, Paul Morgan comments “We have been incredibly impressed with David’s leadership in driving the whole corps forwards and his successes of the 2019 season speak for themselves. This new direction for us will see our Colourguard, Thurrock Academy focus on a full production for the IMG circuit as they are fully integrated into the Drumsound45 program. Another first for us and I for one can’t wait to see all our talented youngsters deliver another great show. I would also like to wish David and his amazing staff every success in this new venture, which has the full backing of the entire TMB board”.
