The YSU Marching Pride is hoping a new fund will mean new instruments for the band. Practicing and performing outdoors has taken its toll on YSU marching band instruments --- some of them are more than 8 years old and in need of replacement. A new fund has been established to pay for maintaining band equipment -- starting with the drums. Updating and replacing the percussion equipment will greatly enhance the experience of attending Penguin Football games -- as listening to the band and its cadences is something that fans have come to expect as part of the season!
