To the Macomb Area Community and Western Illinois University,
For the second year in a row, the welcome and hospitality that you provide our traveling circus have been overwhelming. From the phenomenal stadium, facilities, and campus of Western Illinois to the restaurants that stayed open late for our staff. Rather than complain about the noise, our neighbors often shared their excitement to be listening to us rehearse outside of their offices and homes. We know we come with a lot of (literal) baggage, but your community is wonderfully nice and receptive to us.
Our hornline was thrilled to join the Macomb Municipal Band in a performance of Elsa’s Procession to the Cathedral, conducted by WIU director of bands, Mike Fansler. Check out photos from the event below.

All are welcome!
