Bellefontaine High School’s marching band is making preparations for its 35th annual Band Spectacular Saturday night.
The event begins at 7 p.m. at AcuSport Stadium and features 10 area high school bands will perform, including the host band, Riverside, Jackson Center, North Union, Triad, Urbana, Indian Lake, West Liberty-Salem, Benjamin Logan and Graham.
The Band Spectacular started as a band competition, then evolved into a fun performance opportunity for area bands.
A variety of diverse music and style will be represented in each band’s performance, making each show unique.
Different types of bands will participate, such as show bands (non-competitive bands) and contest bands, which compete for a superior rating and a chance to compete at a statewide competition later in the season.
The theme for the BHS band show is: “On the Radio: Songs of Generation Z.”
Admission is $5 for ages 6 and older. Admission will be charged at the gate and no passes will be accepted.
The Bellefontaine Music Boosters will be selling concessions. 50/50 tickets will also be available.
