ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Melodies have been ringing strong from Hugh Mills stadium all day Saturday as the Marching Band Jamboree brought thousands of students and families to Albany.

More than 1,000 students from 13 high schools performed in front of judges at the stadium. ASU and Valdosta State University also gave a performance.

"It gives them a chance to show what they've been working on all summer long before a captive audience," said DCSS Music Director, Eartha Watkins. "We also have judges that will give them feedback on their performances."

Students will use the judges feedback to help them with future competitions.

Each school had their own personal touch, including Brooks County which used trash cans and ladders as part of their performance.
