McDowell marches into DC

Local News

The McDowell High School Marching Band is gearing up to head to the Nation’s Capitol next week.

80 McDowell marching band students will march down Constitution Avenue on the fourth of July in the National Independence Day Parade.  The students will also visit national monuments and watch fireworks and a concert by the National Symphony Orchestra.

Jerry Anderson, McDowell Marching Band Director, tells us, “We are very happy to have been nominated by our congressmen and our senators, and we really feel a great responsibility representing our entire state in this event. We’re looking forward to that.”
Thanks to donations from the community and fundraising efforts, the band will leave Sunday and return Wednesday.
