When it comes to competitive marching band, it's tough to beat Gustav Holst's, "The Planets". I've been waiting for years to have the chance to arrange this show and I finally had the chance to do it this year. If you have a strong percussion section, they will absolutely LOVE this show! My recommendation would be to take this music and combine it with a show theme such as "Lost in Space". This will give your guard and visual designer more of a storyline to work with than just a show called, "The Planets". In this day and age, effect and story-telling are so important!
