What better way to welcome the 2012 college football season than with an inspiring group of young people joined together by music, and the love of their hometown collegiate traditions.
In the third and final segment of the Ohio State School for the Blind band camp video blog, the students finish their preparation for the upcoming school year, and present their show for parents and supporters. As part of this tradition, you will see the band perform “Script Braille Ohio”, their homage to the Ohio State University Marching Band, in addition to some behind the scenes footage of days 3-5 of the band’s preparation.
I have received overwhelming support and appreciation for compiling this video blog, and I would like to return my own gratitude to the students, parents, directors and supporters of this amazing school and band program. As I prepare for future travels, I plan to share my experiences with the OSSB Marching Band, in the hope of presenting this program as a model to others. The message is clear; music is a language that binds all humans, and programs such as this are truly at the forefront of music education in today’s society.
I hope you enjoy this video, and be sure to check out parts 1 and 2:
