The word enigma can be defined as: a person or thing that is mysterious, puzzling, or difficult to understand. Tom Weidner has arranged an exciting composition based on Edward Elgar’s “Enigma Variations”. Divided into five parts, Tom seamlessly evokes the original intent of the music with an extra dose of electronics thrown in for good measure. Your field show could be highly conceptualized or just flat out great marching and playing. Either way, “Enigma Variations” is a perfect choice. As with any Center X show, visual concepts can be changed to fit the needs of your group. This show offers many unique musical moments and ideas that would work well with many themes or guard ideas.
