U of I cross-college and campus collaboration brings 150 LED triangles to Vandal Marching Band’s 100th anniversary halftime performance

Marching Band Celebrates 100 Years in Style

The University of Idaho Vandal Marching Band didn't settle for 100 candles on its birthday cake. The band’s 100th anniversary included loud music, lots of dancing and bright lights — about 1,125 LEDs to be exact.

The band’s Homecoming football game performance included 150 new percussion triangles that light up when played, an engineering and design feat from a half a year’s worth of collaboration among four U of I colleges and hundreds of volunteers.
