The Summer Symposium concluded on Saturday, June 28th with a phenomenal showing at the ISU stadium.  A terrific crowd of students, parents, family members and directors stayed for the final performance by the student marching band, colorguard and percussion tracks and of course, the Drum Major Academy!
