Phantom Regiment Drops Details On 2019 Show

After releasing the concept in November of 2018, Phantom Regiment has announced some more details about their 2019 show. Having used the hashtag "#IAmJoan" for the last few months, the corps finally announced that the tag would be their official show title in 2019.

Along with this information, the corps dropped a video of just a solo female rifle performer in a very dark backdrop with just one light illuminating the performer from the side. Piano music gently accompanies the performer while a stern voiceover fills the rest of your attention.

The show will go up against corps like The Cadets and Crossmen, which are also putting on shows in 2019 that tell a story using a distinctly female protagonist. The show is described in a short summary from Phantom Regiment's website: 

"In a time when the world needed someone to stand up, hers was the voice that ignited change. The 2019 Phantom Regiment celebrates bold, empowered women and the spirit of revolution through the lens of Joan of Arc, one of the world’s most prolific independent women. Sometimes when you are willing to stand alone, the whole world will listen."

The corps will tell this story using the music from "Carmina Burana" by Carl Orff, "Audivi Media Nocte" by Oliver Waespi, "Zohar" by Jonathan Leshnoff, "Fire of Eternal Glory" and "Lady Mcbeth of Mtsensk" by Dmitri Shostakovich, "Vox Populi" by 30 Seconds to Mars, and finally "Unleashed" by Two Steps From Hell.

"Fire of Eternal Glory" and "Vox Populi" are two pieces in particular that will have new and old drum corps fans looking directly at Phantom Regiment with high expectations—30 Seconds To Mars is a popular rock band from the last two decades, and "Fire of Eternal Glory" is an old Phantom Regiment favorite tune.
