Throughout the weekend (pictured, L-R) Kelsey Pilant and Marie Hauger played in one of the two bands where they worked with an award-winning composer, David Gillingham. They also marched on the field at the Washington Grizzly Stadium with the GMB and performed for their pre-game entertainment in front of 24,000 people.
