The Youngstown State University marching band ran through their fall routine Saturday evening in front of their families.
Every year YSU holds Meet the Marching Pride so that residents of the Valley can get a sneak peek of what the band has worked on.
A graduate assistant with the band says this is a good opportunity for band members to play in front of someone.
“It is a great warmup for the kids because this is their first chance to be in front of people who are not the staff members. Really perform for people they know, or not know like strangers, just having their first environment in playing in front of someone prior to the first big football game,” said Ryan Ham.
The first game for the Penguins is this upcoming Thursday.
