Marching Ravens Take the Field
Not only does Baltimore support the team and its band, but so do some 400 members, including musicians, flag line, honor guard, equipment crew, staff, and medical crew from eight states, including North Carolina and West Virginia. Some drive more than two hours to perform during home games and to attend Wednesday night rehearsals. They range in age from 14 to over 60. All are volunteers. The Marching Ravens hold auditions every Wednesday night; visit www.ravensband.org, or call (410) 557-8335.
Drummers stay sharp with weekly practices.
