SALEM, VA – The Summer Music Games returned to Salem Tuesday night.
The 30th annual event features high school and college marching bands, along with five world-class drum corps from across the country.
It showcases artistry and athleticism but also serves as a huge fundraiser for the Pride of Salem band boosters.
“If students can’t afford to participate in band, it allows them to participate and not have to worry about saying, ‘Well I can’t do this because I can’t afford to pay it,” DCI Coordinator for the Summer Music Games Steve Belanger said.
