An orange and black train is ready to rumble through Elizabethton.
The defending Division II state champion Betsy Band had the opportunity to give the community a glimpse into what this year during a special performance held in John Treadway Gymnasium at Elizabethton High School Friday night.
Band Director Perry Elliott opened the evening by announcing to the packed house that the Betsy Band will perform at Neyland Stadium September 23 during the University of Tennessee Volunteers football game against the University of Massachusetts.
Met with excitement from the crowd, Elliott added the students would perform alongside the UT Pride of the Southland Marching Band at halftime, participate in the Vol Walk pregame and have an opportunity to take the field for their performance.
