Most American colleges have marching bands. There’s nothing newsworthy or exciting about them. But when the Ohio School for the Blind in Columbus formed a marching band it was something worth talking about.
From the outset it was always a crazy idea. How could people who can’t see learn to march together? Where there’s a will there’s a way, and now the inspirational band are heading to the Rose Parade.
I love the nervous excitement of the students, and the calm of their band leader. I especially adore the way he waves his arms around conducting his crew even though they can’t see him doing it!
This is one of those beautiful videos that stays with you long after it ends.
