Students from Northwestern Lehigh High School and some middle schoolers spent several weeks before the beginning of the school year learning band music and practicing for the field show they would perform during this year’s football games.
The students began by learning the drill positions on the field by counting beats, followed by singing their parts as they marched.
Once band director, James Lykins and Drum Major Jess Eberle say they are ready, band members pick up their instruments, flags and batons and play the music as they march.
