NORWICH – Long days and warm weather in the late summer equal band camp for the proud members of the Norwich High School Purple Tornado Band.
Rehearsals for the half-time football game shows and band competitions are well underway in the field behind the school, with marching and music beginning at 1 in the afternoon and continuing through 9 p.m. with just a short hour break for dinner.
The camaraderie shared will be displayed at 7 p.m. Saturday as a fundraiser for the Tornado’s trip to Boston this school year gets underway. Band parents, families and community supporters are invited to the field for a show by the Brigadiers, a drum and bugle corps, and special guest, the Inbhear Mór Marchers, a 45-piece marching show band from Ireland. General admission is $10; gates open at 6 p.m.
