PurColour and The Philadelphia Mummers Parade
This past New Year, as tradition The Philadelphia Mummers Parade was held despite frigid temperatures. The parade has been going strong for 118 years. In the parade “Mummers” dressed up in colorful, elaborate outfits, play music, dance, shout and sing. Recently, we have seen a trend of adding our Color Blasters to the event. Our color blasters add a fun use of color in coordination with the routines.
This year Fralinger String Marching Band selected “Movie Chromatic” as the theme of their performance. You get to follow the visionary director as he dreams of using color to enhance cinematic masterpieces. Storyboards of future projects are increasingly saturated with splashes of color. Building a concept to become a box office sensation, he launches into production with a pocket full of dreams and the desire to land a silver screen success. Fralinger performs songs from movie musicals including West Side Story, Singing in the Rain and Mary Poppins.
Congratulations to everyone involved including: Captain Scott Wray, Presentation Director Jeff Crompton, Music Director Shawn Decky, and Arranger John Wernega.
