2019 Field Show: Wolves Within
Our internal human struggle is embodied by the Cherokee legend of the two wolves–one is evil and the other good. Our daily choices feed our inner wolves, and we strive to feed our good wolf. This powerful soundtrack affords your audience an emotional experience while reinforcing a positive way of life for your students and community. The included voiceovers greatly enhance the show concept, but the music stands alone without them as well.
