On Saturday, June 23rd, the Lincoln Way Marching Band performed the National Anthem at the White Sox game.The game took place at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago, Illinois. Nearly all musicians of the 300-member LWMB performed on the field shortly before the game.
The Chicago White Sox generously provided tickets to the LWMB in order to raise funds for their 2019 New Year’s Day trip to the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, California. Tickets were provided at a $10 discount, which LWMB members then sold at face value. Students sold over 1,200 tickets, raising over $12,000 for their trip.
“We are so excited to be playing the National Anthem at the White Sox game on Saturday,” says LWMB Director Justin Barnish. “Thank you to the White Sox for providing us an opportunity to have a one-of-a-kind performance experience, along with allowing us to raise funds for our upcoming trip to Pasadena.”
