What it takes to make the PSU Band.

As summer kicks in, of course that means football season is not far off. Our local high schools are very competitive when it comes to who is the best band. Last year, Hempfield High School hosted the 21st Annual Hempfield High School “Opening Knight” Band Festival. Over 20 bands were featured and many of those band members will be trying out for college bands across the country. And one of the best is the Penn State Blue Band. Each year over 200 freshman try out for fewer than 100 openings. It’s a tough competition and this featured video tells the story of how 8 freshmen competed for a position.

AD: Have you ever tried Paintball or Air Soft games? There’s nothing else like it and Ambush Adventure Park is local.
