La Porte band

The La Porte High School pep band performed during Monday’s lacrosse match at Kiwanis Field. It will also be on hand for Friday’s baseball game with New Prairie, Monday’s lacrosse match and a May 10 baseball game.

Bands are a big part of the atmosphere at high school football and basketball games, but the COVID-19 pandemic constraints on attendance turned off the music for the 2020-21 hoops season.

“Our marching band did perform at home football games, but we weren’t able to have our normal winter,” La Porte High School Music Coordinator Matt Sullivan said. “I felt bad, especially for the seniors who had done it four years and don’t get to have that one last time, also the majority of them who aren’t seniors.”
