LP Band alumni to perform Friday night

Posted by wlpo on October 14, 2010

Anytime LP plays Ottawa in high school football, it’s an exciting game.  But it’s the halftime performance scheduled for Friday night that will be the excitement for some LP fans.

Over 60 LP Marching Band alumni will take the field with the band for the varsity game’s halftime show.

The band alums were students of former band director Chris Izzo who was at LP from 1960 until 1972.

Band Director Kyle Adelmann says the alums have been able to practice the music on their own and will be able to rehearse with the students during the sophomore game.

He says the students are excited to meet former band members.  He says they’ll be performing pieces that would have been heard at football games over 40 years ago.
