GLENVILLE, WV – The Glenville State College ‘Wall of Sound’ Marching Band will have a feature performance at the Glenville Presbyterian Church “Band Bash” on Friday, August 23. The event will take place from 5:00-7:00 p.m. with the band performance beginning at 6:30 p.m.
In addition to the band performance; there will be a picnic and games including an inflatable bounce house, all for free and open to the public.
The band began using the field adjacent to the Presbyterian Church for their pre-season camp several years ago which has led to a successful partnership. “We could not have held these camps without the Glenville Presbyterian Church, Pastor Kinney, and their many hard working members. They’ve been incredible providing us with both a location and meals. They are truly a blessing and are hugely appreciated,” said marching band director Dr. Lloyd Bone.
The Glenville Presbyterian Church is located at 1172 WV Highway 5, about one mile from the stoplight toward Grantsville, just past the Gilmer County Fire Department. Event organizers encourage attendees to bring a lawn chair to better enjoy the outdoor festivities.
Free shuttle service will be provided for those parking at the Morris Criminal Justice Training Center that is located across from the Gilmer County Volunteer Fire Department on 103 Factory Road. Handicap parking will be available at the Presbyterian Church. In the event of rain, the event will be hosted at the GSC Fine Arts Center.
