The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater’s Warhawk Marching Band will perform at the Green Bay Packers’ home game against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, Nov. 19, at Lambeau Field, one of the most famous sports venues in the world.

The 162-member band was invited to perform at halftime and post-game in front of a potential crowd of more than 80,000 people.

The group last performed at Lambeau Field on Sept. 10, 2017.

"We are thrilled to be able to return to Lambeau Field,” said Glenn Hayes, director of bands at UW-Whitewater. “The students have been working with a strong focus and determination to give an incredible performance. I could not be more proud of each and every one of them!"

The band’s performance, titled “ALIVE!,” includes the movie and musical hits “Come Alive” from “The Greatest Showman” and “The Club” from “In the Heights.”

The Warhawk Marching Band performs at all UW-Whitewater football regular season home games and other select campus and community events during the fall semester.

UW-Whitewater hosts the annual Wisconsin School Music Association State Marching Band Championships every October.

The marching band is one of several musical ensembles at the university. In addition to Lambeau Field, UW-Whitewater’s ensembles perform in other famous venues around the world, including Carnegie Hall in New York City, the Symphony Center in Chicago, and at venues in Germany, Poland and England.
