State of Mind (Marching Band)

w/Ezekiel Lanser $1700 (7:55)

Grade 3 Winds. Low World Percussion.

“Your mind is a garden…and your thoughts are the seeds."

This show will take your members on a quest to find what success and happiness really is. Is it monetary value? Is it achievement and recognition from others? Or is it the understanding that everything can be viewed from a certain perspective and happiness comes from within.

Musical moments include three solos (baritone, mellophone, and a very special alto saxophone moment with effects applied to it). Other musical moments include the front ensemble to interweave phrases of the show as many segmented woodwind and brass moments bounce off the field…left and right.

Visually you get to explore the entire field as it represents the full garden of the mind. The guard can be dressed as rose petals to start and end the show to signify growth and abundance. The commissioned show included a stage that was transported anywhere the imagination allowed it…with solos and movers interact around and on the stage itself.

The final quote puts everything into perspective:

"You can complain that roses have thorns.
Or you can rejoice that thorns have roses.
It’s all in a State of Mind.”

“State of Mind” was commissioned for La Quinta High School for their 2018 Season.
