Our Song Orange High School (NC) Panther Regiment
Nov 14, 2020
Our Song tells the story of our band community’s trials and triumphs of 2020. In our first movement, You Keep Me Hangin’ On by Motown’s premier female artist group, the Supremes, we tell the story of our band’s emotions and how we’ve overcome the difficulties of the coronavirus pandemic and the closures that have separated us.
Our second movement features Changes by Tupac Shakur which used The Way It Is by Bruce Hornsby to share the struggles of racial injustice. With Changes, we share our nation’s struggles through music and through the words of author and civil rights activist, James Baldwin.
In our third movement, Believer by pop-rock group Imagine Dragons, our band voices our hopes for a better and brighter future. Using quotes from famous celebrity, motivational speaker, and philanthropist, Oprah Winfrey, we share our call for unity and equality in these challenging times.
