Malverne band marches through adversity


The coronavirus pandemic has not stopped Malverne High School’s award-winning Pride of Malverne Marching Band from sharpening their skills as they continue to thrive.

Members of the band have taken rehearsals outside and onto the Mules’ football field to practice under the lights. While keeping their successful rhyme, they have also practiced social distancing and only take off their masks if they are blowing into their instruments or for water breaks.
