Freedom High School Band marches in Governor’s Inaugural Parade Jan. 13

Freedom High School “Soul Squad” Marching Eagle Band participated in the Virginia Governor’s Inaugural Parade in Richmond on Saturday, Jan. 13. Only four bands across the commonwealth were selected this year, and Freedom was one of two high school bands participating.

Thomas Thorogood, Freedom High School Band director, explained that the Freedom HS Band selected thanks to a community member who submitted a video of the band performing to the Inaugural Committee. Thorogood added, “The students are super excited about the opportunity to represent Freedom High School, Prince William County Public Schools, and all of Northern Virginia. This is a tremendous honor.”

The only high-stepping marching band in the region, Freedom High School entertained 4,000 expected attendees, as it performed, “Torch of Liberty March,” “Rock With you,” by Michael Jackson, and “Treasure,” by Bruno Mars.
