Michigan Marching Band prepares for first-ever digital show
ANN ARBOR – For the first time in 123 years, the Michigan Marching Band band will be performing virtually. The band has adapted to a virtual format for performances, and will be releasing its first digital show in November. Michigan Marching Band’s 56th drum major, senior Walter Aguilar, said he has shifted his focus to keep the spirit of the 400-member band alive during these unprecedented times. “My focus has been on translating the traditions and excitement to new members in order to keep the community and spirit of the Michigan Marching Band thriving,” Aguilar said in a statement. 🎉👏#GoBlue #MMBandTogether pic.twitter.com/z8cRdbYnP3 — Michigan Marching & Athletic Bands (@umichband) October 4, 2020For many students, their second time in uniform on the field this season was for a September photo shoot.
