MADISON – The evening will serve as a reprise to all the work that started in July at band camp and continued to November with hundreds of hours of music memorization, drill moves and complete dedication. “Sounds of the Stadium” will recapture those moments by the 2023 James Clemens High School Marching Band.

James Clemens band will perform tunes that excited the crowd in the football stands this season, along with themed music from their “In and Of Itself” competition program for marching invitationals.
Along with the exciting ‘stadium’ selections by the musicians, the program will include formations by the Color Guard, stylized moves from the Dance Team and the hard-driving rhythms and percussion accessories of the James Clemens Drum Line.
“This is an exciting event that you will not want to miss. An enticing silent auction and sumptuous dessert reception will follow the concert,” according to boosters.
Guests can bid on merchandise and services that will serve as great gifts and home decor, among other types of deals. As an added treat for the night, an array of sweet treats of cakes, cookies and pieces will be waiting for the audience to enjoy.
