LINCOLN — Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Cornhusker Marching Band continues to plug away.
Abigail Ridder, daughter of Tom and Colleen Ridder, of Logan, a sophomore at UNL and percussion player, has been part of this Band for two years.
And Ridder said that even though COVID-19 has changed things in a lot of ways, she is thankful.
“Although band is different this year, I’m grateful the directors have found a way for us to still come together, make music and keep the spirit of the Cornhusker Marching Band alive,” she commented.
Selection for membership depends on what section an individual tries out for.
For Ridder, who’s part of the front ensemble, continuing as a member requires her to try out every spring by playing some exercises and a solo piece they select.
