Sacramento Mandarins 2004 Production — Samurai

In the name of honor, in the face of battle, lives the soul of a warrior. The tumultuous and surprisingly elegant world of the medieval Japanese Samurai is brought vividly to life in the Mandarins 2004 production "Samurai". The Samurai are legendary in their warrior prowess and skill. Dedication, loyalty, and true honor were the characteristics of these warriors.

Musical selections include:
"Red Warrior", composed by Hans Zimmer
"Ouverture Solennelle", composed by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky
"Tabidachi, Nishi he" (Departure, to the West), composed by Joe Hisaishi
"Bullet", composed by Les Wong
"The Way of the Sword", composed by Hans Zimmer

Brass arrangements by Dr. Dan Fong with percussion arrangements by Les Wong and Brian Aguilar. Drill design by Brian Mar. Concepts and choreography by Gregory Mar.

The Mandarins will be touring extensively with performances in California, Washington, Florida, Virginia, New York, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Iowa and Nebraska on their way to the DCI World Championships in Denver, Colorado.

The next camp for the Mandarins will be held April 23-25 at Lodi High School. There are currently positions available for brass, color guard, and taiko drummers. Visit our new audition page at:
