The Chicago White Sox will host the Marian Catholic High School Marching Band for a performance before the 6:10 p.m. game Aug. 18 against the Kansas City Royals.
The Marian band, a seven-time Bands of America Grand National Champion and Class 3A state champion, will march into Guaranteed Rate Field with a parade of supporters marching behind them. Anyone purchasing tickets for the event will be allowed to march in the warning track parade around the field, and the first 1,500 fans will receive a Marian Catholic branded White Sox hat. 
After marching around the field, the band will play the Star Spangled Banner from center field at the start of the game.
Marian fans can purchase lower box and right field bleacher seats through the White Sox special that will donate a portion of each ticket price back to Marian to support scholarships and financial aid.
Tickets can be purchased at
