Riverside City College Marching Tigers’ Drum Line captured its sixth consecutive national championship this past weekend in Dayton, OH, scoring 98.563 points and setting a new world record for marching percussion ensemble. Competing in the WGI Independent Marching World Division, RCC bettered Rhythm X from Columbus, OH and Pulse Percussion from Westminster, CA. The national championship competition concluded an undefeated 2015 season for the Tigers. The 41-member team of percussionists presented an ecologically themed show titled Guardians of the Breath, which Gary Locke, director of the Marching Tigers, called “a kind of musical wake-up call,” a warning of the dangers of the human lifestyle habits killing off trees. “It was an amazing, sophisticated (performance), yet accessible to spectators, fans and judges,” said Locke. “The production often moved at break-neck speed. The performance included the felling of futuristic-looking steel trees and ended on a hopeful note with the introduction of a new, young tree.” For more information, log on to wgi.org or marchingbuzz.com
