“A man may die, nations may rise and fall, but an idea lives on.” JFK

By Michael Gray

Special to the Moultrie News

The thought of capturing an idea and turning it into something physical, tangible or active, has fascinated man throughout history. Those small inspirations that turn into full grown concepts and result in actions that change the world, are evident in our every day existence.

The car, the light bulb, the airplane and cheesecake are among our favorite ideas that made their way into our reality, all having once been a mere thought.

The 2013 Wando High School marching band will explore the idea of where we get inspiration, how that gives rise to an idea and how that idea becomes real. In a show titled, “It’s ALL Wright,” the band explores the thought process of America’s preeminent architect, Frank Lloyd Wright’s efforts to design stained glass windows for his iconographic homes. The show begins with a small stage, a work room, full of blueprinted ideas that are leading no where. The architect is in an agitated panic until a beautiful muse, with her clarity of thought and purity of inspiration enters to clear his mind and reveal the vision that’s trapped in his clutter. This begins an adventure of exploration, failure, revelation and eventually creation as the glorious windows come to life before your eyes. The Wando band will compete at Bands of America Atlanta and South Carolina State Championships, where they will defend their eight-time state title.
