The Ohio State School for the Blind Marching Band, the only blind marching band in the world, will perform at several events this fall. The nationally recognized band, under the leadership of Director Dan Kelley and Music Director Carol Agler, has been recognized for their ability to both entertain and inspire.
The band performs half-time shows at area football games, assisted by volunteer marching assistants. More than a fourth of the band’s members have "perfect pitch," as do Kelley and Eaton’s own Amanda Gabbard. Both have been blind since birth. A person with perfect pitch, when hearing a musical note such as B-flat, has the innate ability to name that note correctly or to sing that note when requested without any assistance.
