ORLEANS -- The Lake Region Union High School Marching Ban, under the direction of the school's music director, Dr. Sara Doncaster, will be representing Vermont on Sept. 21 in Springfield, Mass. at The Eastern States Exposition in the Vermont Day parade.
Vermont Day at the Big E (weather permitting) is usually the largest day during the 17-day fair, with somewhere between 100,000 and 150,000 people on the grounds. The band has been rehearsing since mid-July and is a true representation of our school community: elementary, junior high and high school band students will be marching along with faculty and alumni. The band is performing three musical selections: the premiere of Dr. Doncaster's arrangement of "Life Goes On" a rock song by the Northeast Kingdom based band, "Electric Sorcery"; Karl King's traditional march, "The Peacemaker"; and the New Orleans style march, "Take It To the Streets."
