NORWICH — The much-loved Pageant of the Bands parade usually held in Sherburne will take place online this year.
Sherburne Middle and High School Band Director Joe Roche said rather than holding the in-person event, students will be pre-recording their performances which will be shared on Youtube.
“They’re sending in the performances via Google links, and then we’re going to load those links onto a Youtube platform. What will happen is our website will put on a link the public can click on,” said Roche.
The event will run from Tuesday, June 1 to Saturday June 5, which is slightly longer than the usual three day event.
“We figured we’ll run it for the full school week. People can go on there at their leisure,” said Roche.
Roche stated that, as a way to add some of the competition usually present at Pageant of the Bands, residents will be asked to “like” their favorite performance on Youtube. At the end of the event points for each performance will be reviewed and a winner will be declared for each section.
