Vicksburg bands prepare for concert, raffle

After a challenging year, Vicksburg Middle School and High School bands are preparing for their spring concert. The event will be held outdoors in the Vicksburg Stadium at 7 p.m. May 25.

During the concert, the winners of the annual spring raffle will be drawn. Tickets are $5 with a chance to win $2,500, $1,000, or $500. They’re available for purchase from band students, band parents or at Craig Rolfe’s office at 328 West Prairie Street, Vicksburg.

As Band Director Ben Rosier reflects on the year, he’s proud of his students and their continued striving for excellence; he is also thankful for the help of the administration’s safety protocols that “kept our student musicians healthy throughout our music making.” Rosier is planning a full calendar of events for summer as well as the return of the Big Red Machine in the fall.
