This was the second annual Marian Catholic Night with the Chicago White Sox. 

The evening began with a march around the field, beginning at the “400” sign in center field. Led by the Marian Catholic Marching Band, faculty, parents, students, and supporters circumnavigated the field. Then, the Spartan Band played the Star Spangled Banner with incredible depth, the powerful performance sounding throughout the stadium.

That moment, that performance, left no doubt as to why this band, led by Mr. Greg Bimm, has won so many state and national awards. And continues to do so year after year.

Sr. Mary Jo on Good Morning America, Monday, August 20, 2018:

The White Sox fell to the Kansas City Royals, but the evening was one for the history books of Marian Catholic: alumni, Dominican Sisters of Springfield, faculty, staff, parents, students, and friends.
