“I’m proud of them, but it would be more accurate to say that I’m proud for them because they did the work,” Pignato said. “I guess it’s that I’m proud that they came out of our program. Everyone in the department is very proud.”
All the band members are looking forward to the competition, Berg said, and have been preparing several cover songs for the performance. Berg said she has interviewed for several post-graduation internships, but hopes to continue with the band for as long as she can.
“I hope we go far,” she said. “We’re gonna try as hard as we can to do that.”
Turning Stone’s College Battle of the Bands is open to the public, ages 18 and older, and doors will open at 7 p.m.
