JHS Red Raider Marching Band Holds Community Preview Night

The Jamestown High School Red Raider Marching Band held a Community Preview Night to showcase the band’s new show, “Dreams of Flying” to a large crowd last night. Under the direction of Meghan Murray, the band demonstrated various marching band warms-up including explaining the many different ways  students march during a show. She also explained the amount of time and effort these students put into each performance including memorizing not only the music but also all of the marching configurations for a show.

The JHS Red Raider Marching Band’s first show will be Friday, September 6th at the Varsity Football Game at Strider Field. Their first competition will be at their Fall Festival of Bands on Saturday, September 14th at 6:30. This year’s Drum Majors are: Katie Miktuk, Jacob Sandstrom and Madison Walker-Blake.
