    Dia De Los Muertos

    Amherst Marching Comets 2018

    The performance begins with a field full of undecorated and bare tombstones, then progresses to a somber appreciative ballad for those that have passed as students work the stages into vibrant memorials for their deceased loved ones by assembling multitiered Ofrendas. The show then culminates with a joyous celebration for those that have passed through an eruption of colored flags and fabric.
