UC Marching Patriots to present band camp preview show

 


WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. – The Pride of the Kentucky Mountains UC Marching Band has been hard at work during their week of band camp and will be presenting a preview show on Thursday, August 20th at 5:00 p.m. on the marching band field. This show will include the opening music and drill for this year's half-time show along with a demonstration of various marching maneuvers that the band has been perfecting during the week. The preview show will last about 20 minutes and will provide an entertaining look into what the band has in store for the upcoming marching season.

The band is under the direction of Dr. Steven Sudduth who is beginning his second year at the helm of the UC Marching Patriots. Building on the success of last year, the marching band has seen the biggest one-year increase in numbers in the band's history and boasts over 65 performers. In addition to have more playing members, the band has added pit percussion consisting of keyboard and auxiliary percussion instruments that will add new sounds and colors to the bands presentation.

The performance is free and open to the public.
