Music will start at 6 p.m. Friday
Friday night, music returns to the mountain.
The second installment of Music on the Mountain, a Drum Corps International show hosted by the Sheffield Music Boosters, kicks off at 6 p.m. at Sheffield Area Middle Senior High School.
“It was a huge success last year and we got a lot of really good feedback from the community,” said Music on the Mountain Chairman Art Lane. “They were hoping we would do it again. We looked at our finances and decided we could do it.”
The revenue from last year’s show went to music programs in Sheffield and Kane, as well as the Sheffield Senior Center. Even after that, Lane said there was enough for a down payment on this year’s show.
Hopefully, Lane said, it will continue into an annual event.
“We love it here,” said Spartans color guard caption head Lennie Machado.
Joining the Nashua, N.H.-based Spartans in returning from last year are 7th Regiment, New London, Conn.; Legends, Kalamazoo, Mich.; Les Stentors, Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada; Raiders, Burlington, N.J.
Last year’s parking carries over to Friday night with the addition of a second shuttle bus. The upper lot nearest the football field will still be handicap parking only and, once that lot is full, a sign will be put up to advise drivers.
Seating is bleacher seating and there will be golf carts available to transport spectators should they need assistance.
The event benefits the music program at the school. “Everything is so expensive now,” Lane said. “Right now, Sheffield needs a new trailer to haul equipment to the shows. This helps pay for things like that.”
Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students at the gate, which opens at 3:30 p.m.
