Tornado field band readies for Fall Festival this weekend

NORWICH – Community members are invited to cheer on the Norwich Purple Tornado Field Band as they host their last competition Saturday night before competing at the Syracuse Carrier Dome next Sunday.



The Field Band hopes to draw a big crowd at this year’s annual Fall Festival of the Bands when they perform to their theme “Seize the Day,” based on Disney’s 1992 musical “Newsies.” The Field Band has been working on their performance since mid-July, spending numerous nights rehearsing at the high school.

The band has seen a growth in numbers this year, bringing excitement and vigor to every competition. Jamie Carrier, who is nearing the end of her first year as the band’s director, said she’s been more than pleased with this year’s group.
