Bands take the field at March on Madison on Sept. 24

MADISON – The “March on Madison” expo will assemble several local bands for residents to experience their 2019 field shows, in case you can’t attend a football game yet yearn to feel the splendid sights and sounds of marching bands.

Bob Jones High School Marching Bands host the annual fundraiser event that offers band aficionados a venue to see the latest marching drills and hear up-to-date arrangements of music, ranging from pop to classical.

March on Madison is scheduled for Sept. 24 at 6 p.m. in Madison City Schools Stadium, 211 Celtic Drive. Gates will open at 5 p.m.

Woodwind and brass instrumentalists, drum lines, color guard in synchronization with flag and rifle routines and skilled dance team members in precise, high-kicking moves will entertain.

“We have seven local marching bands performing,” said Bob Jones Band Booster President Jack Lyons. “They include: John Paul II, Madison Academy, Madison County, Ardmore, Hunstville, James Clemens, and both football and competition bands from BJHS. Three of the shows will have a space theme in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing.”

“I love to showcase the hard work of our students, and there’s no better way to do so than by putting on diverse performances under the lights of our home stadium,” Bob Jones Band Director Leigh Thomas said previously. “It also is great way for our community to show how much the marching arts mean to the city of Madison and to the surrounding counties as well.”

Spectators can buy snacks at the concession stand.

Tickets cost $5. Spectators can buy tickets at the gate or in advance from any Bob Jones Band member, color guard or dance team member or pay at the gate.
