Fourteen high school marching bands from Minnesota, Iowa and South Dakota took part in the 30th annual Prairie Colors Marching Band Festival on Sept. 10 at Aerie Stadium.
Since it was their home turf, the Eagles Marching Band performance was considered an exhibition, not a competition, as it was for the 13 other schools. The band’s show “Aurora Borealis” featured three original works: “Sky Fires,” “The Heavens,” and “A Vengeful Force.”
Proceeds of the event support all bands at the high school.
The next Eagle Marching Band performances will be Friday, Sept. 16, at the Eagles’ football game vs. Lakeville at Aerie Stadium, and Saturday, Sept. 17, at the Waseca Marching Classic at Waseca High School.
