The Last Sunrise

The Centerville Winter Drumline presents their 2018 production:  ‘The Last Sunrise’

“My last sunrise. That morning I was not yet a vampire, and I saw my last sunrise. I remember it completely, yet I don’t remember any sunrise before it. I watched the whole magnificence of the dawn for the last time, as if it were the first. And then I said goodbye to sunlight and went out to become what I became.” – Louis, Interview with a Vampire

Under the direction of Tim Fairbanks, the 43 students of Centerville will be exploring the intriguing world of the Vampire, with imagery of the classic gothic novel ‘Interview with a Vampire’ by Anne Rice, melded with the modern Anime inspirations of ‘Vampire Knight’. Costuming by Byron Valentine, for FJM — Fred J. Miller Inc.. and Set Design by Scott A Winters and Judy Kick.

Music arranger Andrew Markworth has crafted a wonderful soundtrack of classical musical choices, including Schubert Symphony #8 1st movement from Bram Stoker’s Dracula, as well as a twisted version of the R.E.M. classic, The End of the World As We Know It.

This is the Centerville Winter Drumline’s 21st year of competition and marks the 19th consecutive year competing in the Percussion Scholastic World Class.

Staff members include Josh Brickey, Adam Norris, Mike Cavanaugh, Mason Ferrantelli, Christopher Carlin, Eric Pujari, Erin Conen, Joshua Carpenter, and Tim Jackson.
The Centerville Percussion program proudly endorses D’Addario and Co., Promark, Evans Drumheads, Planet Waves, SABIAN, Pearl Drums and is supported by the Centerville Band Boosters.
