It was a great day in the history of the Rogers City High School band program, and it happened 40 years ago while the country was in the midst of its bicentennial.
The country was celebrating its 200th year of independence and Rogers City band members were right in the middle of the biggest parties in Washington, D.C. and the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia. It will be 40 years ago, July 1, 1976, that they left.
Read about the band’s trip, including an interview with director Steve Bergmann, in the June 30, 2016 edition of the Presque Isle County Advance. To subscribe please call (989) 734-2105.
