The Empire Statesmen, DCA’s perennial finalist and 5-time Champion, are excited to announce their 2013 program entitled “Empire State of Mind”.
2013 commemorates the Statesmen’s 30th and final year of field competition. For this singular season, the design team has assembled a particularly satisfying program based on some of the most engaging productions from Empire’s storied past. Drawing primarily from the vault of Broadway shows that Empire has presented, the 2013 production is designed to fulfill founder Vince Bruni’s vision and purpose: entertain the audience and inspire the members.
Led by David Bruni, the Corps begins with a powerful opening fanfare of Billy Joel’s “New York State of Mind”. The hot and passionate Prologue and Main Theme to “City of Angels” from Empire’s 2004 Championship year is the first major production. The excitement of this blistering production is likely to be DCA’s favorite opening of the season. Following this is the 1997 Championship production of the beautiful and haunting “Sun and Moon” from “Miss Saigon”. Another Empire favorite was the 2000 production of “Phantom of the Opera”. From this show, the Corps presents the colorful “Masquerade”. Finishing the show is “Over the Rainbow” from 2010’s “Oz” along with the theme that epitomizes the Empire approach to entertainment: “My Way”. The energy, excitement and emotion of this year’s program will be palpable to both audience and performers.
You will want to catch this program more than once this season as the Empire Statesmen conclude their outdoor competitive experience with their most crowd appealing and engaging effort ever.
As they say at the end of every rehearsal: “See Ya”.
