Unique Marching Band Performs in Lorain
LORAIN, Ohio — If you went to the Lorain International Parade on Sunday, you know there was a lot to enjoy.
There were over 100 attractions, including many bands and drill teams.
After they were finished marching, Fox 8 News caught up with members of a unique band: The Ohio State School for the Blind Marching Band. It’s 31 members strong, and its director says it’s not just about the music.
“Music is a great avenue not only to learn music, but also to learn all sorts of things such as awareness, and body skills, spatial awareness, and also life skills. You know, what do you need to be successful in life? You need to be organized and disciplined and motivated, and all these things come from band,” said Dan Kelley.
Kelley says the band draws members from all over Ohio.
