Members of Ohio State Marching, Athletic Bands to perform at Spiegel Grove

An estimated 100 members of The Ohio State University Marching and Athletic Bands will perform on Saturday, May 28,at Spiegel Grove during the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Library & Museums Centennial Celebration.

The band members will march from downtown Fremont to Spiegel Grove at 1 p.m. They will head down Front Street, stop and perform at one of the intersections, and then continue up Birchard Avenue, to Buckland Avenue and into Spiegel Grove. Once on the grounds, they will perform in front of the Hayes Home.

A strong advocate for public education, President Rutherford B. Hayes helped to found OSU, and he was the president of the university’s board of trustees at the time of his death.

“He would be thrilled to have members of The Ohio State University Marching and Athletic Bands perform at his beloved estate,” said Christie Weininger, HPLM executive director.

Additionally, members of the marching bands from Fremont Ross High School, St. Joseph Central Catholic High School, Gibsonburg High School and Lakota High School and Hi Society Baton Corpwill perform and march with the members of the OSU bands.

Jon “The Big Nut” Peters of Fremont also will make an appearance. Peters leads the non-profit organization The Big Nut Scholarship Fund, which raises money to provide scholarships for students planning to attend OSU.

Recently, officials from OSU’s marching and athletic bands came to downtown Fremont and Spiegel Grove to meet with officials from HPLM, Downtown Fremont, Inc. and members of the Fremont Elks Lodge and plan logistics for the event. While here, they toured the home and saw parts of the museum, which is under construction but will reopen on Saturday, May 28, during the celebration.

“I think the band will really like it,” said Christian Deiderich, who plays baritone and is a squad leader for one of the bands’ rows of musicians. “I’m excited to come back and see it finished. This is the only time I’ll get an experience like this while being in the band.”

Deiderich was part of the logistics team that visited Spiegel Grove. He was especially impressed with the interactive parts of the new museum exhibits and some of the behind-the-scenes things he saw in the house, including the attic containing the Hayes family’s travel trunks.

The OSU Marching and Athletic Band members’ performance is co-Sponsored by City of Fremont and the Knight-Baldwin Charitable Foundation, Chris & Mary Knight and Charles Knight.
