Band Bulletin #4: 9/6-9

What a great weekend for The Marching Bees!

The students wowed the home crowd on Friday night with an energetic performance of our “Passport” halftime show (as well as a solid Pregame)… then on Saturday, we proudly performed The Star Spangled Banner at Progressive Field, to kick off the Indians game — which ended with a win, promo jerseys, and fireworks!

We, the Directors, have been receiving many, many compliments on your behalf… in regard to both your “conduct and product.” KEEP IT UP!

And the season is just beginning……
