Local Marching Bands Competing in ISSMA Open Class Semi-State Festival

 Marching bands from two local high schools are among 80 from across the state who have been selected to participate at today’s ISSMA Open Class Semi-State Marching Band Festival. The Plymouth High School band will compete in Class B at Pike High School at 3:10 p.m., and the John Glenn band will compete in Class C at Decatur Central High School at 4:28 p.m. The bands qualified for semi-state by being one of the top 10 scoring bands in their enrollment category at their open class regional site on Oct. 12. Today’s competition will determine the 10 bands that will represent each class at the 40th anniversary of the Indiana State Marching Band Finals next Saturday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
