The Blue Springs (B) Scholastic Winter Guard is humbled to present their 2015 production of “The Art of Letting Go” performed to the American singer-songwriter Mariah Carey’s music of “The Art of Letting Go”. Letting go doesn’t mean start forgetting. It means start mending. It doesn’t mean to stop loving, but rather to stop hanging on. Letting go doesn’t mean stop dreaming, it means to start believing. It means to stop looking back, start moving on, start healing your heart and stop holding on.
“As a songwriter, I never like to be too totally specific, because I like people to be able to make it about their own life experiences,” Carey said. “(But) there is an art to learning how to let go of things in your life, people in your life, things that are not good for you. Whatever the case may be.”
“lt’s about letting go of maybe something that’s not right for you. But you just don’t know how to make that final move and let go of it. It’s not easy, it’s something that you have to learn how to do, and I think we’re all still learning.” (Carey)
The unit of 19 performers explore this difficult life lesson/learning process, by inviting audiences to reflect on their own life experiences, while leading them through emotional moments of tension and release by partnering with one other to simply then break away….
This is the inaugural season for Blue Springs (B) branching out into their own competitive Scholastic team from the Blue Springs Winter Guard Program (BSWG).
The unit is under the direction of Sheri Harris and Lindsey Vento with Program Design by Lindsey Vento. Additional staff include: Jesse Skaar, Marisa Pendleton, Sam Houston and Jessica Jobe. The Blue Springs (B) Winter Guard will debut their first Scholastic B performance of the 2015 MCCGA season at Grain Valley High School on February, 21st.
