Band to Perform in Danville Today

Yell county residents will have the opportunity to enjoy the sounds of the Arkansas Tech University Band of Distinction today.

The band is heading to Danville this morning to attend the Yell County Fair Parade.  Each year the Arkansas Tech University Band of Distinction is the featured performer in the parade.

As part of the festivities, the band will march to the grandstand where they will present an exhibition program for the residents of Yell County.

The band will then march to the Yell County Courthouse to wait for the parade to begin.  The Arkansas Tech Band of Distinction will then lead the parade through the streets of Danville.

The band will be under the direction of Carrie Burnett of Searcy, Catelyn Fisher of Allen, Texas, and Katy Yerina of Dover who serve as drum majors.

The band will be back at Arkansas Tech on Saturday to perform at halftime when the Wonder Boys face the Henderson State Reddies.
