In that program, band members showcase various instruments, as well as lots of old and new music.

The band finds its way to various schools every year with the mission of providing young students with the experience of a live band.  It also hopes to highlight music as a real-world career option.  The band is set to perform at five schools this month, through April 19. The program will eventually provide over 6,500 students with the chance to see the band perform.
