Byron’s Weekley to perform at Packers game Nov. 19 with UW-W marching band
WHITEWATER, Wis. — Caleb Weekley from Byron is among the student musicians from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Warhawk Marching Band who will perform at the Green Bay Packers home game against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, Nov. 19.
Weekley, who is studying music at UW-Whitewater, is part of the percussion section in the marching band.
The 162-member band was invited to perform at halftime and post-game at Lambeau Field in front of a potential crowd of more than 80,000 people.
The group last performed at Lambeau Field on Sept. 10, 2017.
"We are thrilled to be able to return to Lambeau Field," said Glenn Hayes, director of bands at UW-Whitewater. "The students have been working with a strong focus and determination to give an incredible performance. I could not be more proud of each and every one of them!"
The band's performance, titled "ALIVE!," includes the movie and musical hits "Come Alive" from The Greatest Showman and "The Club" from In the Heights.
The Warhawk Marching Band performs at all UW-Whitewater football regular season home games and other select campus and community events during the fall semester. UW-Whitewater hosts the annual Wisconsin School Music Association State Marching Band Championships every October.
The marching band is one of several musical ensembles at the university. In addition to Lambeau Field, UW-Whitewater's ensembles perform in other famous venues around the world, including Carnegie Hall in New York City, the Symphony Center in Chicago, and at venues in Germany, Poland and England.
