Description
The Grand Valley State University Marching Band under the direction of John Martin will play at Rosa Parks Circle, to celebrate opening day of ArtPrize 2013.

A dance performance organized by dance professor Carrie Morris will feature the freshmen members of the Grand Valley State University Dance Ensemble. They will dance to two pieces played by the Marching Band.

Grand Valley President Thomas J. Haas will direct the kick-off song at Rosa Park Circle, followed by additional songs and a dance performance. Then the band, along with Louie the Laker, will march in cadence along Monroe Street, through Campau Square to Campau Street, where they will reassemble in the street and play again. They will proceed across the Blue Pedestrian Bridge to the Eberhard Center where they will reassemble to play one last time.

Join us for an entertaining stroll and see the ArtPrize works along the way, and at Grand Valley's Pew Grand Rapids Campus.
