On Saturday September 6th, 2014 the SABRE Marching Band will be participating in the Northwestern University Band Day. This is a fantastic opportunity for the SHS band students to see and perform with other high school marching bands, as well as join the Northwestern and Northern Illinois University Marching Bands for an amazing half time show. Today in class, all of the band students received a hard copy of the Band Day Schedule as well as an information sheet about purchasing discount tickets for the game. I highly encourage all families to consider coming to this game, and supporting the SHS band program. Tickets are very reasonable with the discount that they have provided us.
Here is the schedule for Band Day:
