We Are Together
Ravi Shankar and George Harrison
Miami Alum Brian Diller will be conducting a wind ensemble comprising members from the College-Conservatory of Music, University of Cincinnati.

Thus, this is the 40th Anniversary to honor Pandit Ravi Shankar, who was responsible to implement several global initiatives in bringing the world together.
Patakha Guddi

Shanti Choir
Tabla Ensemble
Jim Feist has been studying tabla for the last two decades and has shared his knowledge with many young students from around the city, from children in the community to students at the University of Cincinnati.
Guan Jie, Glen Velez, Mathew Allen,
and Cleveland Johnson - Th
Guan Jie (China) on Zheng, Grammy winner Glen Velez on frame drums, Matthew Allen (Professor of Music, Wheaton College) on vocals, Cleveland Johnson (Director of National Music Museum, South Dakota) on keyboard and others will work together to create variations of a traditional Chinese composition (and relate the same to Raga Bhoopali) and conclude with

African Ensemble
Maestro Aboubacar Sylla
is a native of Guinea and currently residing in Austin, TX. He, Jason Koontz and Dave Watkins will lead this segment with two pieces -
Ilalee and Sunu
. Leon Enneking is a middle school General Music teacher in Batesville, IN. World music plays a big role in his classroom, where students learn traditional Ghanian tunes. Miami Percussion studio, four-time Grammy Winner Glen Velez,
MU Co-ed Hip Hop Ensemble
, Vanderbilt Bhangradores, and Ogade will collaborate to perform these pieces from Guinea and Ghana.
Southern Gateway Chorus
Southern Gateway Chorus conduced by Jeff Legters is a not-for-profit organization comprising male a cappella harmony singers dedicated to enriching lives in the Greater Cincinnati community by promoting vocal music education for youth, and by providing family friendly entertainment in the barbershop style.
Rhythm X
Rhythm X is regarded as the most innovative percussion team in the world, and were WGI World Champions in competitions (2008, 1012, and 2013). Several Miami Alum who were part of Global Rhythms are part of this team that was founded in 2001 as a small percussion ensemble. Quickly they grew to become a premier performance ensemble in the Winter Guard International World Class. Now, they serve to not only educate their own performers, but to push the limits of their art.
