The Notre Dame Marching Band is, in the words of announcer John “JT” Thompson: “The oldest band in the land and the best.”
I would add to that: Well-traveled.
I tip my hat to the band staff for how well they handle the logistics of moving all those people and instruments around the country and occasionally across oceans. (How *do* you fit a Tuba in the overhead compartment?) We all feel less like strangers in an unfamiliar place when we see the Irish Guard or hear the Notre Dame Victory March.
So the blog post this week is to highlight a special set of prints which feature the Band and some of the extraordinary venues in which they’ve performed: Times Square, the U.S. Capitol Lawn, Temple Bar in Dublin and Millennium Park in Chicago.
Each of these panoramic images is available for $50 through the end of May at photos.nd.edu.
