Blue Knights 2012: Avian

The Blue Knights, Denver, CO, are traveling across the country this summer performing their 2012 production entitled "Avian".  This year's BK takes you on a journey through the eyes of a bird, with musical selections from Igor Stravinsky's "Firebird Suite".  Under the direction of Mark Arnold, the Blue Knights are a perennial DCI Finalist, recieving 9th place in 2011 with a score of 89.20.  With the return of DCI Hall of Famer and Pearl/Adams Artist Ralph Hardimon to the BK instructional staff, the Blue Knights percussion section looks to continue their tradition of success.

The Blue Knights battery is performing on Pearl Championship Maple Series drums, featuring 6-ply Maple shells that deliver the classic Pearl battery sonority.  The front ensemble is exclusively Pearl/Adams equipment, featuring the wonderous timbre of Adams Artist Rosewood keyboards.
