Over spring break, 175 students from the Big Red Marching Machine (BRMM) traveled to Ireland to participate in multiple competitions and performances.

On St. Patrick’s Day, the BRMM was one of 12 bands selected to perform in the Lord Mayor of Dublin’s 2017 St. Patrick’s Day Parade, which included bands and float (pageant) entries from all over the world. The Big Red Marching Machine was named Best Overall Band.

Two days later on March 19, the band performed in the 47th Limerick International Marching Band Competition. Seventeen international bands competed in Ireland’s only international band competition with the hope to be named the Best Overall Band and win the Kenneally Jewellers Perpetual Trophy. The BRMM brought home that honor as well.

Congratulation BRMM students, faculty, and staff!
