If you love music but aren't inclined to attend a football game, you're missing a heck of a show.
Halftime is when high school marching bands show their stuff, what they've been working on since before the football players were permitted to officially begin practice this summer.
The first day of fall is going to be a big night for music.
The 37th annual Upper St. Clair Marching Band Festival is scheduled for 7 o'clock on Saturday, Sept. 22, at the high school stadium.
The USC Band Parents Association is hosting the festival, which will feature five area high schools – including Upper St. Clair, of course – plus Robert Morris University. Tickets can be purchased at the gate: $6 for adults, $3 for students and free for senior citizens.
In case of rain, the event will be held in the gymnasium. Which still promises to be a heck of a show.
