“Timeless Love”


The Mifflinburg Area Marching Wildcats’ 2019 fall show, “Timeless Love” features love songs from several genres that all speak to the nature of love.  The show opens with Elvis’ famous ballad about love’s inevitability, “Can’t Help Falling In Love”.  Next comes “Habanera” from the opera Carmen which describes love as being fickle and fleeting. The next piece takes a look at love from a parent’s point of view. Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely” tells of a parent meeting a child for the first time, and recognizes that moment as the moment we truly learn the meaning of love. The show then concludes with the modern jazz hit “Everything” by Michael Bublé which emphasizes love as being the true meaning of our lives.


The marching band is led by Drum Major Taylor Williams and Assistant Drum Major - Robert Swartzlander.

Band Officers are: President – Christopher Rapson; Vice President –Amanda Reid; Secretary/Treasurer –Benjamin Heintzelman; Historian -Taylor Williams; Senior Representative -Austin Catherman; Junior Representative – Robert Swartzlander; Sophomore Representative –Josh Hauck; and Color Guard Representative – Nicole Maxfield
