Conceptual // Design

Conceptual design is the heart of any successful marching band product.  The Lean Forward philosophy of design centers around creating “Lean Forward” moments constantly and consistently throughout a 7 or 8 minute show.  Our goal is to engineer a variety of clear effects that appeal to both the audience and the judges–at a pace that will keep the audience engaged and “leaning forward” throughout the performance.

It is our belief that marching bands can be successful on both Saturday and Friday!
