The Power of 3 is a show that explores the enigma surrounding the number 3. Utilizing a plethora of 3 note musical motifs, the show lends itself well to simple and impressive visual and musical effect. The musical selections contains recognizable and famous uses of 3 note motifs as well as 3 beat phrases.


Segment 1 begins with a statement of Ravel's "Bolero" followed by a woodwind feature using the music of Verdi's "La Forza Del Destino". This is quickly followed by movement 1 of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony.

Segment 2 utilizes Scarborough Fair as well as Greensleeves to create a more somber ballad moment.  An Irish Bagpipe (Uilleann Pipe) soloist is featured here (can also be played on synthesizer) to create some authenticity to the orchestration

Segment 3 really drives home the show utilizing Carol of the Bells mixed with Saint-Saens' "Danse Macabre" for an opening percussion feature. The segment quickly switches to the opening movement of Beethoven's Symphony no. 3 and then drives it home with Rossini's "William Tell Overture".

This show is sure to bring success, especially to beginning bands looking for a show with attainable visual and musical effect with recognizable music for the audience.
