2022 Production, Staff, and Schedule

2022 Production – A Thirst For… & Schedule

The Miamisburg Viking Marching Band is proud to announce their 2022 production, A Thirst For... Featuring original music by Andrew Markworth, A Thirst For… will depict a journey through an endless desert and the search for life-giving water. Some of the wells visited along the way have run dry, threatening the survival of our travelers, while others will overflow in a joyous flood of color and sound.

You can join us on our quest through the sands and support the 2022 Miamisburg Viking Marching Band as they compete at the local, regional, and national level at the following events this fall:

  • 9/3 – Northmont Premiere

  • 9/17 – Bands of America Central Ohio Regional Championship

  • 10/1 – Tippecanoe

  • 10/8 – Goshen

  • 10/22 – Miamisburg

  • 10/29 – Centerville

  • 11/5 – Mid-States Band Association Championships

  • 11/6 – OMEA State Finals

  • 11/10-12 – Bands of America Grand National Championships

In addition, the band is always excited to support Viking Football at all Varsity games and wishes Coach Schneider and the team the best of luck this season. Go Burg!
