The Elizabethtown Area High School Marching Band performs their show at every EAHS football game (on Friday nights). The Elizabethtown band is featured before home games and at half-time at away games. The band consists of 140 high school students and is directed by Mr. Steven Barraclough. This year’s show is called Fantasy, and includes music from Game of Thrones, How to Train Your Dragon, Wicked, and E.T. -The Extra Terrestrial.
This compilation of music has something for everyone because it includes Broadway, TV, and movies. One of the highlights of the show is “the closer, because the music is so iconic and is very different musically from other things that [the band has] performed,” according to Mr. Barraclough. In addition to the music, the marching routine really showcases the music and fits with each song’s particular style.
Come see the EAHS Marching Band perform their Fantasythemed show before the end of football season!
