Troopers Announce 2019 Show "Beyond Boundaries"

Earlier this week, the Troopers Drum and Bugle Corps released their show concept for the upcoming Drum Corps International season, "Beyond Boundaries." 

With nothing more than a promise for more info and a show graphic, the community was left with many questions about what might be coming from America's Corps in 2019. Corps Director Kristy Jackson is especially excited as she takes on her first full season in the position.

"You can feel the energy and excitement brewing with this talented group of people and we can't wait to show the world what we've been up to," she said in an exclusive interview with FloMarching.

Jackson was unwilling to give up any further details about the show concept but did say that the 2019 Troopers would "push our innovation to a new level and strive to be better than ever."

In the past, Troopers have been known for their shows being draped in Americana and a sort-of Western fantasy. It's looking like 2019 will be a page-turn for the organization, while still including references to their most valued traditions.

So, how exactly will "Beyond Boundaries" be different from the typical Troopers?

"'Beyond Boundaries' will be a vehicle to do exactly what we became famous for in our early years... In the 1960s, the corps was held back by many perceived boundaries. We were from Wyoming, isolated by geography. That is why we broke beyond boundaries and became the first touring drum corps. Trekking beyond boundaries is the nature of the frontier spirit, and our brand was founded on that very concept," Jackson answered.

We'll continue to update this article as more information is released on the Troopers' 2019 program "Beyond Boundaries." Until then, I leave you with this final line from Kristy Jackson: "No perceived boundary will keep us from working toward that mutual goal, and our trailblazing history doesn't have to remain as a story that exists only in our past."
