Dazzling choreography, explosive percussion, and a powerful, positive message about history, unity, and pride: DRUMLine Live is an unforgettable foray into a uniquely American art form. The soulful, high-stepping style of the historically black college and university (HBCU) marching band experience—as captured in the hit movies Drumline and Drumline: A New Beat—is the focus of this interactive, high-energy show. A synchronized musical showcase of the legendary HBCU experience, DRUMLine Live is perfect for families, and appeals to music lovers of all ages with an emotional program that promises to have the audience on its feet!
- In addition to launching the ubiquitous American musical art form known as Drumline, HBCUs have graduated a Nobel Prize winner and multiple Pulitzer Prize winners (not to mention astronauts, educators, public leaders, politicians, athletes, and celebrities).
- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. wasn’t in a drumline—but he was a tenor in the Morehouse College Glee Club.
- DC’s Howard University is famous for its Showtime Marching Band—and musical alums like Sean Combs, Taraji P. Henson, Michael Blakely, Meshell N’degeocello, and many more.
This concert will run approximately 120 minutes with intermission.
