Red Deer Royals Show Band performs
The Red Deer Royals Show Band performs its field show Scheherazade with music by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and based on the Arabian Nights tale at Great Chief Park Wednesday night.
The 92 12-to- 20-year-olds will perform the show at the World Championship for Marching Show Bands Saturday in Calgary after marching in the Calgary Stampede parade Friday.
Once its Calgary shows are complete — with perhaps a berth in the championship finals Tuesday — the band returns to Central Alberta for a host of performances and parades.
A presentation was also made Wednesday to outgoing director Rob Goring.
