DeKALB — NIU High School Band Day is set to take place Sept. 25, where NIU will provide the opportunity for numerous high school marching bands to perform at halftime with the Huskie Marching Band at the next home game for the NIU football team.

The NIU High School Band Day takes place once a year, where multiple high school bands are invited to perform at halftime with the Huskie Marching Band after a morning full of rehearsals to prepare for the halftime show. This allows high school band students to get the experience of performing in front of a collegiate crowd in a college stadium.

To participate in NIU Band Day, you can register online where you will find the band section there as well.

NIU will play the University of Maine at 1:30 p.m. at the Huskie Stadium. The game can be viewed on the BIG Ten Network.
