Two DGN Band Alumni To Perform National Anthem at Tonight's NCAA March Madness Final

Two DGN Band Alumni - Tommy Donnelly (Class of 2014) and Brett Latman (Class of 2013) will be a part of a large Trumpet Choir that will perform the National Anthem at tonight's NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship game.

Donnelly, a Mechanical Engineering major at Purdue University, and Latman, a Music Education major at Indiana University, are both involved in their respective college marching bands.  They will join trumpet players from several Indiana schools - as well as the United States Army Herald Trumpet Ensemble - to perform the Star Spangled Banner.

The performance of the National Anthem will be heard by approximately 70,000 spectators at Lucas Oil Stadium, and millions more world wide during the television broadcast.

Tune in to CBS-TV tonight to hear the National Anthem.  Tip-off is 8:18 CST.  The Anthem will be performed shortly before.

Congratulations Tommy and Brett!
