Band students get tips at Lawson Field

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Several students who would probably love to be in Alabama's million dollar band showed off their stuff at Lawson Field Sunday.

Judges were on hand to give tips on how to make their performances even better.

Band directors say fine arts programs are suffering in the current economy. They say administrators often cut band first, which can affect a student's future.

Seven high schools and five middle schools were represented at Sunday's event.
