Corning-Painted Post High School’s marching band will venture to Dublin, Ireland to march in the city’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
After two years of delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic, students will finally get to perform in Dublin’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Thursday, March 17.
The Corning-Painted Post high school students were selected to perform after competing against marching bands from across the U.S.
“These students are just amazing…they want to represent themselves and this program at a high level,” said band director Joseph Stork, according to WENY News. “They work hard…there’s a lot of talent in this group but more so there’s a lot of heart and pride to be a Hawk.”
The marching band will fly to Dublin, Ireland on March 12.
