Marching Band D-Day Memorial Trip
This June, members of the Cyclone Marching Band's select France Band will travel to Normandy, France, to participate in ceremonies honoring American World War II veterans and to commemorate the 72nd anniversary of the D-Day landing.
The students will perform at the Omaha Beach Cemetery, as well as in the town square of St. Mere Eglise, as part of the Salute to Liberation. Other notable performances will occur at the American Cemetery at Brittany and in the D-Day Memorial Parade.
The Iowa State University Cyclone Marching Band was chosen as the only American musical ensemble to participate in this incredibly prestigious ceremony and will be representing not only the state of Iowa, but our entire United States of America. The band was chosen through a competitive application process, and its selection was based upon the excellence and tradition of the entire band program at Iowa State University.
The talented 152 students of the France Band have been tasked with raising money to offset the costs of the trip. They greatly appreciate any support you are able to provide! Go Cyclones!
