The following is a press release from Pearl River Community College:
When the Pearl River Community College Spirit of the River marching band marches onto the field for the 2012 football season, it will be 160 strong.
“It’s a very mature group and probably some of the better players we’ve had in awhile,” said Dr. Kyle Hill, PRCC director of bands. “The last time we were anywhere near this size was four years ago.”
The band’s 2012 halftime show features music that almost everyone will recognize - Michael Jackson’s Thriller, Motown’s Somebody’s Watching Me, Night on Bald Mountain from Fantasia and Resolution from Ghost Busters II.
The String of Pearls dance squad will be featured on Somebody’s Watching Me.
The 22-member String of Pearls will also dance to Edge of Glory by Lady Gaga during pregame performances.
Drum majors are sophomores Allen Grace of Hattiesburg and Taylor Trigg of Petal and freshman Adam Weatherford of Columbia.
The Spirit of the River’s first performance will be on Sept. 13 when the PRCC Wildcats host the Jones County Junior College Bobcats in the first home game of the season. Kickoff is at 7 p.m.
Working with Hill are Mike Bass, assistant director; Kara Fleming, String of Pearls director; Chasity Hawthorne, color guard director; and Ronnie Pascal, percussion instructor.
