Wind Ensemble, Wind Orchestra and Cal Poly Marching Band practiced for weeks to create the first virtual Bandfest. Students performed in small groups on campus a few days before the event and Music Directors Nick Waldron and Chris Woodruff edited Zoom student-recorded pieces onto the screen. The finished performance was released on Nov. 15. To practice in person, students follow strict guidelines including wearing a special mask while playing, practicing outside instead of in the band room and limiting the number of students per group while following a weekly testing regimen.
