The Vestal Golden Bears Marching Band will host its home competition, The Golden Circle of Bands, on Saturday, October 14, in the Dick Hoover Stadium. Gates open at 5 p.m., and the first band takes the field at 6 p.m. Tickets are $8 at the gate.
Many talented young musicians will gather to compete in this New York State Field Band Conference competition. Vestal’s Marching Band will welcome seven high school bands from (in show order) Norwich, Corning, Union-Endicott, Phoenix, Johnson City, Kingston and Horseheads to the 2017 Golden Circle of Bands competition.
Vestal Marching Band takes the field after the Phoenix Firebird Marching Band. Vestal’s show theme this year is “We Built This.” The marching band musicians and colorguard take us on a journey through civilization… from the Stone Age to the roots of our farming culture, from the industrial revolution to today’s developed world, and even into the future. We welcome you to join us and see what we have built, together!
Here is the marching band’s remaining schedule for 2017:
· October 21 - Paul V. Moore High School, Central Square, NY
· NYS Field Band Conference Championships:
Sunday, October 29 - Syracuse’s Carrier Dome
