The University of Maine School of Performing Arts hits the road as the University of Maine Pride of Maine Marching Band performs Sept. 6 at halftime of the Falmouth High School football game.
The Yachtsmen’s game with the Gorham Rams kicks off at 7 p.m.
The UMaine band will also perform Sept. 7 at the Black Bears’ football game with the University of Massachusetts Minutemen at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.
Christopher White directs UMaine’s Pride of Maine Marching Band, which includes 88 musicians, dancers and majorettes.
“It is important for us to visit schools in Maine,” says White. “Many high school music programs do not have an opportunity to see a band of our size and it gives our students additional performance time.”
The band’s halftime Fire and Ice show performance features fire batons, kick lines and dancing musicians.
UMaine’s band performs at major university events and football games, in addition to special guest appearances, including at the American Folk Festival in Bangor.
