On Tuesday, September 18th, the Sto-Rox Junior/Senior High School Marching Band was invited to play the National Anthem for the Pittsburgh Pirates home game against the Kansas City Royals.
Students marched onto the field and stood center stage to perform for the crowd of enthusiastic Pirates fans. The instrumentalists, drum line and Vikettes impressed the fans with their patriotic rendition and the crowd responded in kind with cheering and applause. Students stayed for the game and ended up getting to see a win by the Pirates. Sto-Rox parents and friends joined the band in the stands after the performance.
The Band is very grateful to the Pirates for the opportunity to perform on such a wonderful stage. Video of the performance is linked below:
