“We are thrilled to be able to return to Lambeau Field,” said Glenn Hayes, director of bands at UW-Whitewater. “The students have been working with a strong focus and determination to give an incredible performance after only being together for eight days of rehearsal. I could not be more proud of each and every one of them!”

Titled “Marvel at Us,” the band paid homage to the musical scores of the blockbuster Marvel Comics films, including “Spider-Man” and “Iron Man.”
