Youngstown State University’s Dana School of Music hosts the Marching Pride Field Day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 3, at Stambaugh Stadium on campus.

Activities include a marching and music fundamentals workshop for prospective and current members, color guard auditions and the fourth annual drum line workshop. The drum line workshop consists of instruction in playing techniques and fundamentals, with time spent marching on field. All activities are open to high school drummers and prospective members of the Marching Pride. Lunch will be provided.

“This is a terrific opportunity for high school seniors and current YSU students to meet new friends, and get a head start on instruction for the 2014 YSU Marching Pride season,” said Brandt Payne, YSU director of athletic bands.
