On Saturday, September 21st, the Marching Dukes of Marlington attended Louisville High School’s “Music in Motion” marching competition, competing against local marching bands.
The Marching Dukes performed their show “RBG”, inspired by the Rube Goldberg Machine, featuring a functioning Rube Goldberg Machine on the field made from props used throughout the show.
The not yet complete show will soon add their final song, as well as the rest of their props to completely assemble the machine.
In the first competition of the year, the Marching Dukes competed in Class A, facing Lexington and Revere High School. Marlington placed 3rd in their class, earning a III overall. Music in Motion’s Grand Champion was Hilliard-Bradley High School.
The band will be competing once again on Saturday, September 28th at the University of Akron’s “Zip Invitational”.
