JHS Marching Band To Host Fall Festival Of Bands Sept. 16

JAMESTOWN, N.Y. – The Jamestown High School Marching Band will host bands from around New York and Pennsylvania for its 44th Annual Fall Festival of Bands Saturday, September 16 at 6:30 p.m. at Strider Field. The JHS Marching Band will perform their 2023 show, The Quest.

“Our Jamestown High School band students have been working extremely hard this summer to prepare for our competitive fall season!” said JHS Marching Band Director Meghan Murray. “The band is full of hardworking students who have put a lot of effort into this show. Based on video game music, The Quest takes the audience through a video game story - searching for a missing artifact through different worlds and settings. Using music from Assassin’s Creed, Fullmetal Alchemist and Civilization VI, the band will present a highly entertaining show!”

The Fall Festival of Bands is the JHS Marching Band’s most significant annual fundraiser. Bands performing this year are: Eisenhower,  Falconer/Frewsburg, Northwestern (PA), Iroquois (PA), West Seneca, Orchard Park, Corning-Painted Post and Jamestown. Mercyhurst University will also perform an exhibition performance!

Tickets are $10 presale and $12 at the door (doors will open at 5:30 p.m.). Tickets for admission can be purchased from any band member or by calling (716) 483-4217.
