St. Martin Independent Show Announcement

From a St. Martin Press Release

St. Martin Independent is a non-profit (501c3) regional drum theater group serving students ages 14-22 in our southeast Louisiana and Mississippi Region. We compete locally and nationally in Winter Guard International Competitions.  This year, our show is titled “21 Steps” to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Our show’s purpose is to demonstrate that war does not discriminate and exacts sacrifice from all who participate regardless of race, sex, gender, or size.  Through music and voice samples, including the one from Dr. King  “If a man hasn’t discovered something that he will die for he isn’t fit to live”, we hope to bring attention to our society’s continued need for unity and equity among all people.
