Gardner-Webb University will host a preview performance of world-class musical group Carolina Crown’s 2016 show “Relentless” on Saturday, June 18, the organization’s final day of training at GWU before embarking on an American summer tour. The drum and bugle corps, which includes some of the world’s best young musicians, spends several weeks at Gardner-Webb each spring to rehearse its show in preparation of its annual tours and competition in the Drum Corps International World Championships. This year’s Carolina Crown program is modeled after William Shakespeare’s “Hamlet,” inspired by Homer’s “Iliad” and borrows from William Goldman’s “The Princess Bride” to share a tale of revenge through the perspective of a Spaghetti Western.
