This year's show was entitled "Opposing Forces".

The show opens with Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, a very powerful and exciting start which then unfolds into Ron Nelson's Rocky Point Holiday. This movement will showcase the many "opposing forces" at work both musically and visually. In classic Grove City style, there are plenty of notes and it will certainly get the blood pumping! The second number is based on Abram's Pursuit by David Holsinger and will feature the percussion will be a very energetic continuation of the first movement, sure to excite and thrill our audiences! The third movement changes pace and will feature many soloists along with many impactful moments that will bring the audience to their feet; it will be quite the contrast from the first two pieces! After an emotionally powerful third movement, the finale will culminate into a climax that only the Grove City Marching Band can pull-off!
