The 2023 JSU Marching Southerners Present:
2023 Marching Southerners Production
As the Marching Southerners looked into the mirror of time after 30 seasons, the reflection they saw was you…the Southerners members, fans, and family. It is because of your collective work, dedication, and support that the Marching Southerners are the institution and legacy known and loved around the world. This season was yours to choose…and you have decided.
With a bold introduction of Matthew Wilder and David Zippel’s “Reflection,” the 2023 production begins with a symphonic and cinematic trip to the skies as “Firebird” and “Fly to Paradise” join forces in a brand new and exciting opener.
The Ballerinas have created many timeless and show-stopping dance sequences over the past three decades. Among the best of these was “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” and it returns in 2023 for a re-imagined curtain call that will have everyone in the stands dancing along!
Southerners’ ballads have provided some of the most poignant moments ever staged on the marching field. In the spirit of this year’s theme, “I’ll Fly Away” and “Over the Rainbow” transport us back to the places in the past we all knew…perhaps…once in a lullaby.
“Malagueña” changed the game in 1995. A classic was re-invented for the modern era and REFLECTION concludes in the same spirit…with an all new arrangement of this familiar favorite that brings the last 30 years full circle. Just wait…
Always and forever…Blow Southerners.
