The Canfield High School Cardinal Pride Marching Band's 39th annual Show of Bands will be held at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 27, at Cardinal Stadium behind the high school.
This year, the Cardinal Pride will debut its new show for the 2013 season as well as brand new uniforms. The Canfield Band Parents' booster club, which was established in 1960, spent the last 12 years conducting various fundraisers to purchase the new uniforms.
This year's musical performance is entitled "Urban Lights," in honor of the band's invitation to march in Chicago's prestigious Magnificent Mile Lights Festival Parade this November.
Canfield's first band night was held in 1974 with Austintown Fitch under the direction of Larry Snell from Fitch and Canfield's Tony Cebriak and is considered to be one of the oldest band nights in northeast Ohio. This year's program will feature seven high school marching bands from around the Valley, including Austintown, Boardman, Champion, Poland, Struthers and West Branch. These students have been preparing for their shows since late July.
Tickets and programs will be available at the gate for $5 for adults, $3 for seniors and students, children under 5 are free. All proceeds continue to support the Canfield Bands music program.
