"Participants exhibited sense of pride: …and I quote, Best day ever! We live in a small town where many students are exposed to the same routine, same people, getting out into a new environment is a new experience." ~chaperone
"We have many students who love music. VSA Day offers an opportunity for students to express themselves with music and to feel proud that they are a part of something as amazing as the UW Marching Band." ~ Sue Shannon, DeForest Area High School
