CARBONDALE (WSIL) — Hundreds headed to SIU to support their high school bands at the Saluki Stadium Saturday.
Fourteen marching bands throughout Southern Illinois and Missouri competed in SIU’s "Music and Motion" – where each group performed their own version of a halftime show.
George Brozak, director for SIU Athletic Bands, says students competing in Saturday’s event put a lot of time and effort into their performances and that the skills really showed on the field.
"There’s various kinds of programs; some of it very narrative and telling an important story, others are doing Lady Gage music and the music of today, so it’s a great combination, and they worked very hard" says Brozak.
The event wrapped up with a special show featuring SIU’s own Marching Salukis.
