RAHWAY — Twenty members of the Rahway High School Marching Band’s percussion section will be featured as halftime entertainment for Sunday, Nov. 24’s New York Giants football game vs the Dallas Cowboys.
Three weeks ago, the high school’s program received an invitation from Gallant Entertainment, Inc. to be part of a all-star massed drumline with other local high schools. All in all, 100 students will be part of the performance.
In three weeks time, these students have memorized five minutes of music and rehearsed more than eight hours to be ready to perform this brand new material in front of a capacity crowd at Metlife Stadium, this Sunday.
Rahway High School Band Director, Robert Van Wyk said, “We are so excited for these students to have this great opportunity in front of so many people. These students truly work hard and it is so exciting to see them achieve at a high level.”
Football fans watching at home will not see the performance, but may catch a glimpse of the students. The game broadcasts frequently show quick shots of the performers as they go into or come out of commercials during the halftime show.
