Watchmen 2018 Production

Watchmen enters into the 2018 season in their fifth year of competition, and they are stronger than ever. Starting as a brass ensemble in 2013, Watchmen has grown into a full size open class corps and will be touring this year in California, Arizona, Utah, and Colorado. This year’s production is entitled “Altered”, where they will test your altered states. The original composition by Harry Hutchins and Paul Rendon comes in four movements and will evoke images of psychological manipulation, covert intelligence, and mind control.

Will chaos ensue?
