The nationally-recognized marching band from Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School visited Copiague Middle School student-musicians on March 2 in effort to pique their interest in joining the band.
The marching band, led by band director Eric Dobmeier, showed off some of their instruments and musical selections to the middle school students. Marching band members spoke about some of their individual experiences. The musicians, along with members of the Color Guard, played part of their routine for the audience of young musicians. They also showed a video of their performance in Syracuse last year.
The band is beginning its recruiting process now before it starts rehearsals in May. The band practices during the summer months and culminates its season with a performance in Syracuse.
