The North Hills School District will hold its 59th annual Marching Band Festival at Martorelli Stadium starting at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 14, 2019.

The 59th annual North Hills Marching Band Festival will be held on Saturday at Martorelli Stadium starting at 7 p.m.

In addition to the marching band from North Hills, the Sept. 14 event will feature performances by bands from Avonworth, Bethel Park, Chartiers Valley, Ft. Cherry, Ft. LeBoeuf, Northgate, Sto-Rox, South Fayette and South Park high schools.

The North Hills band’s performance is titled “Renegade,” which was arranged specifically for this year’s band and is part of the pregame show.

The “throwback” performance features musical selections including “All Along the Watchtower,” “Pinball Wizard,” and “With a Little Help From My Friends.” The band’s march features music by John Williams.

Tickets cost $8. Children 5 and younger are free.

Refreshments and other items will be available for purchase.

In the event of rain, the festival will be moved to the North Hills Middle School gymnasium, 55 Rochester Road, Ross Township.

The event is sponsored by the North Hills Instrumental Parents’ Association.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
