The NMU Pride of the North Marching Band will perform the first of three fall Superior Dome shows, absent a football game because of COVID-19, at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 12. A "studio audience" of 120 who request passes in advance will be able to watch the performance live in the Superior Dome. The show will also be streamed for viewing later in the day on the band's Facebook page.
The performance will be presented in three segments: ACT 1, formerly known as pregame; ACT 2, formerly known as halftime and featuring classic rock hits "Theme from Rocky," "Rhythm of the Night," "September" and "Still"; and ACT 3, formerly known as post-game.
The band is marching block-style drill and members are spaced at 7.5-foot intervals, using bell covers on most instruments. Audience members must wear masks and sit socially distanced in the bleachers on the media deck (press box) side of the field.
A limited number of free guest passes are available on a first-come basis, with a maximum of two per person. They will be emailed before Saturday. Band parents and alumni area also invited to obtain passes. Send requests in advance to Director of Bands Steve Grugin at email@example.com.
The remaining Saturday shows are scheduled at 1:30 p.m. Oct. 3 and Oct. 24.
