A spectacularly popular “Attraction: The Music of Scheherazade” propelled Santa Clara Vanguard and its Fred Sanford Best Percussion Performance-winning drum line to third place, featuring Russian composer’s Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s popular 1888 interpretation of “The Arabian Nights,” a series of centuries-old stories set in the Middle East. This particular story was brought to life with multiple scimitar-bearing Sultans, multiple sabre-bearing Scheherazades and flag-bearing Dunyazades, representing the title character’s sisters who tried to save her from the Sultan’s death penalty.
