JAMESTOWN, NEW YORK (WNY NEWS NOW) – The Jamestown High School Red Raider Marching Band is set to perform their annual Fall Festival of Bands on Saturday, September 16 at 6:30 PM at Strider Field in Jamestown.
The 2023 performance will be their 44th presentation of the show. This years theme for the show is “The Quest”.
In a statement posted on the Jamestown Public Schools website from JHS Marching Band Director Meghan Murray, “The Quest takes the audience through a video game story – searching for a missing artifact through different worlds and settings. Using music from Assassin’s Creed, Fullmetal Alchemist and Civilization VI, the band will present a highly entertaining show!”
The annual Fall Festival of Bands is the Marching Band’s biggest fundraiser of the year. As in previous years, their performance will also feature other local high schools from New York and Pennsylvania.
Other bands include: Eisenhower (PA), Falconer/Frewsburg, Northwestern (PA), Iroquois (PA), West Seneca, Orchard Park, and Corning-Painted Post. Mercyhurst University will also be in attendance with an exhibition show.
