PRCC marching band takes off to presidential inauguration

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Pearl River Community College band began their 18 hour journey Saturday.

Four buses were loaded with instruments, uniforms and more than 100 band members.

The Spirit of the River marching band is heading to Washington D.C. to perform in the presidential inauguration on Monday.

The PRCC students will represent the state of Mississippi in the 1.5 mile parade as they play "God Bless America".

"Looking forward to a long bus ride, and some sightseeing, and maybe some snow," said PRCC band director Kyle Hill.

The band will take a quick tour of the nation's capital on Sunday, and return back on Tuesday.

    Presbyterian Christian School likely faces a simple proposition Thursday night: Defeat Madison-Ridgeland Academy and the Bobcats will host a Mississippi Association of Independent Schools Class AAAA playoff game. The opponent: the very same MRA. “There’s one scenario, but it’s a low percentage one, so it looks we’re going to play back to back,” PCS coach Joey Hawkins said.
