CHSMB To Perform at Ohio State

The Celina High School Marching Band has been invited to perform at The Ohio State University as the guest performing group at the Ohio State Marching Band's "Skull Session" on Saturday October 9 prior to the OSU vs. Indiana football game.  The Skull Session is essentially a Concert/Pep Rally held in St. John's Arena prior to every home game, and is attended by over 10,000 fans.  Visiting college bands often perform at this event as well, and it is quite an honor for us to be invited.

Just a reminder that this Wednesday evening (Aug. 18) is the Mercer County Fair Band Show. We will meet AT THE FAIRGROUNDS in the infield of the track at 6:15. We will be wearing our Summer Uniform, and you must be wearing it in order to be admitted to the Fair free. Also, band members should enter via the gate near the grandstands (at the end of Wayne St.).

See you there!
