Carly Belich has been selected as drum major and Abigail Uhrinek field commander for the Saint Vincent College marching band, the March of the Bearcats, announced its director, Randall Kratofil.
Belich, a freshman middle grade education major from Aliquippa (Hopewell High School), and Uhrinek, a freshman biology major from Natrona Heights (Highlands), were selected through the three-stage audition process for the 2019-20 season.
Now in its second decade, the March of the Bearcats is the largest performing musical group on the Saint Vincent College campus. The band has grown from a student club to a fully credited class that fulfills graduation requirements. The band has performed at Pittsburgh Steeler preseason games in each of the past three years, and performs every weekend from the start of classes through November for all Saint Vincent home football games and select away games, while also appearing at various marching band festivals and parades across the region.
