Coming to America

America is a joyous mixture that combines into something even greater than its parts… and so is Coming to America, a show which celebrates that diversity by seamlessly melding elements as disparate as James Brown and Neil Diamond, John Philip Sousa and Cardi B. The immigrant experience is dramatized and celebrated in a show that is built around your most talented musicians, giving them the spotlight and while allowing space for the rest of your ensemble to grow and develop their musicianship. Musical motifs from the lives of many American generations work together to make Coming to America a thrill for any audience, and an even greater joy for the performers.

Musical selections include “Living in America” by James Brown, “I Like it Like That” by Cardi B, “America” by Neil Diamond, “The Stars and Stripes Forever” by Sousa, and “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee.”

Coming to America was composed for the 2020 Hightower High School Marching Band from Missouri City, Texas.
