Members of the Port Chester High School Marching Band will be getting some tutoring today from a big-time college band.
The UMASS Minutemen band will be rehearsing on the PCHS field from 9 to 11 a.m. Sunday. They are traveling from a Saturday afternoon football game in Massachusetts to a collegiate marching band festival in Allentown, PA, on Sunday, and stayed overnight Saturday in the PCHS gym.
This morning, they will practice on the field as well as tutor the members of the PCHS marching band.
If you miss the UMASS Minutemen on Sunday, you'll see them again in November 2013. Under the direction of Director, Timothy Todd Anderson and Associate Director, Thomas P. Hannum, the University of Massachusetts Minuteman Marching Band will be traveling to New York City to march in next year's Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
The UMASS band has more then 350 members.
