OrchKids to Perform at the Thanksgiving Day Ravens Game
The OrchKids Performance Bucket Band, consisting of 15 students in 3rd through 8th grades, have been given the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform at the halftime show and in between the third and fourth quarters of the Ravens game on Thanksgiving Day. Pieces to be performed include arrangements of the Ravens fight song, as well as a joint performance with the Ravens' own marching band. OrchKids will serve as the opening act for their BSO musician counterparts, who are also performing, and have been given ‘front-row’ seats to watch the second half of the game!
