Today we took a portion of the band to our neighboring school, Salem College! It was a fun performance for their Final Friday celebration before they go on thanksgiving break.

We have a great relationship with Salem College, and we have several Salem College students in our band through the shared experience program.

Thank you @salemcollege for hosting us!

Since we reached our goal of 50 supporters so quickly, the offer has increased! If we hit 75 supporters by the end of the day tomorrow, the offer will increase from $10,000 to $25,000. We need 25 more! Find the link in our instagram bio and on our instagram story to be a part of a historic year of giving to make our program grow!

As a Salem and SOTOGAB alum, this is awesome! Being a part of the band was one of the best experiences I had in college.

I loved my time with SOTOGAB! The color guard spent new years on the beach during the Orange Bowl and I'll never forget it!

Love this!!
