What is Skull Session? Why is this such a big deal for our band?
Skull Session with The Ohio State University Marching Band originally served as a final music rehearsal for the band prior to their performance on the field, but has evolved into one of the most anticipated game day traditions at The Ohio State University. Skull Session gives audiences the chance to hear the band perform all of the music from their pregame and halftime shows for that day, as well as a special visit from the entire Buckeye Football Team. The Oak Harbor High School Marching Band will have the opportunity to perform for over 12,000 Buckeye fans! That is 5 times the population of Oak Harbor! We will get the opportunity to perform for nearly 40 minutes before Skull Session officially begins, and will get to perform one more song as part of Skull Session as the official guests of The Ohio State University Marching Band.

Skull Session takes place in St. John Arena, located on the campus of The Ohio State University.
