Outstanding in the field

A total of 119 student musicians and 26 Lionettes in the Orange High School Marching Lion Band have been learning their music and drill while wearing masks, practicing outside and maintaining social distancing. This year’s show is color-themed with a repertoire including “Paint it Black,” “99 Red Balloons” and “Mr. Blue Sky.” The halftime show features new pink poms in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, new polo shirts for the student musicians and new tunics for the Lionettes as part of the effort to keep everything sanitized and safe. The first performance is scheduled for Sept. 25 at the school’s Lewis W. Black Stadium.
