If marching band has its own major leagues, then Philadelphia High School senior Jonathan Hall is ready for his first at-bat with the pros.

Hall was recently selected to play fifth bass drum in the prestigious Southwind Drum & Bugle Corps, based in Mobile, Ala. It is a performing musical group originally founded in 1980 in Montgomery, Ala. Southwind is part of Drum Corps International, which is a non-profit governing body for junior drum and bugle corps in the United States and Canada.

“It’s considered part of DCI, which is considered like the major leagues of marching band,” Hall said. “We go at the end every month and have rehearsals. The entire month of June and July, we go and tour the entire South. It’s a step up from high school and college marching band.”
