Watchmen Announce 2019 Production – Gods of the Nile
Entering in their sixth year of existence, the Watchmen Drum and Bugle Corps is 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 “Gods of the Nile”, take a journey with them down the Nile . The original composition by the talented Paul Rendon, Brandon Johnson and Marcel Barragán will provide the background for a musical and visual journey as the corps explores the mythological tapestry of ancient Egypt and it’s most famous natural resource, the majestic Nile River. Known as the “bringer of life”, much of Egyptian mythology and religion focuses in and around the Nile. From birth to death, from peace to war, and love to anger, the Gods of the Nile provided ancient Egyptians with guidance and direction through life. Music and visual design will bring to life these gods and the time of Ancient Egypt.
