breakfast with the band
Aug 12, 2023 | 8-11 am | Howard Wood Field
Student closed rehearsal starts. The stands aren't open at this time, but you can get donuts plus visit our info and merch tables.
The stands open to family and friends who get the good fortune of seeing and hearing the students, directors and instructors in their element.
You’ll hear from our band directors and instructors about this year’s field marching show and what students have been working on so far.
Things to Know
Wear red to show our “sea of red” supporting our performers.
This event is ideal for band families, grandparents, extended family and close friends.
If you have one, bring a stadium chair or blanket for extra comfort on the bleacher seats.
Feel free to take photos of the band at the event, but please do not share videos online or on social media. We want to keep some secrets from the general public.
Be prepared to hear very loud ticking sounds. It’s from a metronome, which the band uses early in the season as a practice tool to produce a steady pulse (or beat) to help musicians play rhythms accurately. The pulses are measured in beats per minute (BPM). Don’t worry, it’s no longer used when competitions start.
