Green Machine at Cirque du Soleil's "Volta!"
Members of our pep band play to promote "Volta!"
In addition to our larger groups, we have several small ensembles that comprise the Green Machine program. These groups range from 4 to 15 members and are a combination of students and alumni. We also have impromptu groups that pop up, based on a specific request or gig.
One such ensemble assembled on August 30th. Cirque Du Soleil contacted the Green Machine for help promoting their show, Volta, in the DC area. We provided 4 musicians to march, play and promote the show. Cirque Du Soleil put them in Volta makeup and costumes and they spent the afternoon at Ellsworth Place in Silver Spring. This was an amazing opportunity for our organization!
